Two people are dead after a wrong-way crash on I-95 in Hampden this evening.

I-95 southbound remains closed at this hour between Exits 180 and 174.

The SUV struck a pickup truck head on near Exit 174 in Hampden. Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene. There were no other occupants or injuries reported.
