Maryland State Police are investigating a fatal three-vehicle crash that occurred Saturday evening in Cecil County. 

Officials said shortly before 6:50 p.m., troopers from the Maryland State Police JFK Memorial Highway Barrack responded to a three-vehicle crash on northbound Interstate 95 in North East, Maryland. According to a preliminary investigation, traffic was stopped in the left two lanes of northbound I-95 due to a previous crash when a 2014 Chevrolet Sonic rear-ended a 2016 Toyota Highlander, which then rear-ended a 2022 Toyota Rav4 police said. 

The driver of the Chevrolet, identified as Gage Myers, 18, of New Jersey, was declared deceased at the scene by emergency medical services personnel.
