    My husband and I had just come through there about that time, it was dark like night and approaching the scene we saw many official vehicles, including a police chief and police leuitenant and emergency response teams, we didn’t see what happened but saw the two vehicles and one off the interstate looked like it nearly wrapped around the tree. It was a horrific scene and can only hope for survivors. On our way coming back through on I-95 northbound about an hour later, we seen traffic backed up for nearly four miles..
