A series of accidents on Interstate 95 northbound has caused major traffic delays north of the Fort McHenry Tunnel on Friday afternoon, according to a Maryland Transportation Authority spokesman.

Traffic at 4 p.m. was backed up from north of the White Marsh area, where the first of the accidents occurred about 12:30 p.m., down to Eastern Avenue, said John Sales, the spokesman.

A second accident in White Marsh further slowed traffic, as did an accident and a fender-bender just north of the tunnel, Sales said.

Sales was not sure when those accidents occurred, but said all lanes were clear as of 4 p.m.

Still, their impact on traffic was still being felt, he said.

"Because of the delays due to those accidents and the Friday afternoon traffic, we have major delays," Sales said.
