A Lexington man was seriously hurt in a car crash at Exit 28 of Interstate 95 that shut down the highway for a short time Wednesday night.
A car and a tractor-trailer collided at about 7:30 p.m. on the southbound side, State Police said.
Eric Stout, 40, of Lexington was driving the car and suffered serious injuries. Stout was taken to Beth Israel by a medical helicopter, State Police said. The driver of the tractor-trailer, whose name was not released, was uninjured.
Both sides of I-95 were completely shut down for about 12 minutes so the helicopter could land and “traffic was impacted,” State Police said.
Authorities closed the highway at about 8:15 p.m., police said.
All lanes were open southbound as of about 9:45 p.m. The right two lanes had been closed for the crash investigation and cleanup.
The collision is under investigation. Stout was still being treated for injuries as of Thursday afternoon, State Police said.
