According to a preliminary investigation, three vehicles were involved in a minor crash and had pulled off the road. One of the vehicles left the scene after exchanging information with the other drivers.

The registered owner of one of the vehicles, Jose, Ismael Bonilla Reyes, 36, of Montgomery Village, Maryland, arrived on the scene to assess the damage to his vehicle. According to a preliminary investigation, the driver of a silver Honda Civic traveling north on I-95 lost control of his vehicle and struck one of the vehicles, a blue Honda Accord, that was involved in the initial crash.

The incidents remain under investigation.
