Multi-Vehicle Blaze on I-195- One person was killed, and a second person was injured in a fiery three-vehicle crash involving two trucks on a Massachusetts highway on Tuesday afternoon. The tragic event, now dubbed the “Multi-Vehicle Blaze on I-195,” occurred around 1:20 p.m. on the westbound side of Interstate 195 in Seekonk, Massachusetts.

First responders and state troopers rushed to the scene. Video from Sky 5 showed a white sheet covering a portion of what appeared to be a burned vehicle in front of a box truck.
