A 2013 Toyota drove into the rear of a 2010 Kenworth tractor trailer that was stopped due to a wide load crossing the Monitor Merrimac Bridge tunnel, according to the preliminary investigation. The driver of the Toyota, Darla A. Alexander, has died as a result of her injuries.

      Hey, Jerk, My family knew her. Little other traffic was stopped & it was an illusion that the truck was for the wide load crossing. Uncalled for comment. Darla was 55, had more friends & family than you probably ever will as you die cold & alone.
