Another wrong way accident on I-395. Overnight on Thursday, at approximately 1:00 AM, 37 year old Jonathan Costa from Westport, Massachusetts was traveling north in the passing lane on I-395, just past exit 32 in Plainfield. A ford Fusion driven by 53 year old Stephen Wild of Uxbrudge, Mass, was also in the passing lane, but he was driving the wrong way, and driving south when he collided with Costa and the 2017 Toyota Tacoma pick up truck that he was driving, as they were going around a corner. As a result, both vehicles sustained disabling damage and were towed off the scene. Both Costa and 38 year old Susan Souza of Fall River, Mass, the owner of the pickup truck were taken to Day Kimball Hospital for treatment of suspected minor injuries. Stephen Wild died as a result of his injuries.
