    Police said the crash happened around 6:30 p.m. after a Buick driven by John Adams veered into the right shoulder on the south bound lanes of I-395.

    The Buick then came back across both lanes before entering the median and striking the metal beam guar rail causing the car to continue through the median and into the north bound lanes of traffic, according to police.

    Authorites said the BUick then struck a Toyota Corrola driven by a 23-year-old woman resulting in the Adams' Buick rolling over and striking a Toyota Sienna.
