GREENWICH -

Officials say multiple accidents happened Wednesday night along I-95, causing one death and heavy delays.

One person died after a car crash near Exit 4 in Greenwich.

Police say two cars were driving down I-95 when another car changed lanes, hitting one and causing it to slam into the other. They say a passenger in the first car hit was pronounced dead at the scene.

Drivers were forced to get off at Exit 3 and go around the accident as crews investigated.

According to police, a second accident happened involving a truck rolling over near Exit 2 in Greenwich, causing heavy delays.

They say some cleanup was required after fuel from the tank of the truck spilled on the highway. The area has since been cleared.

A third accident happened overnight that state police say they are investigating.

Officials say a rental truck went up in flames on the highway. Viewer video from the scene shows intense flames and thick smoke billowing across I-95 north in Stamford. No injuries have been reported.
