Police said three vehicles were involved in a minor crash and the drivers had pulled off the road to exchange information with each other. One of the three vehicles left the scene after doing so, according to state police.

Jose Ismael Bonilla Reyes, 36, the registered owner of one of the vehicles involved in the incident, arrived at the scene to assess the damage to his vehicle. Another vehicle, a Honda Civic, traveling north on I-95 at the time lost control and struck one of the vehicles involved in the initial collision, state police said, pinning Reyes between vehicles.
