Update: We now know who was driving the wrong way on I-95 this weekend causing a deadly crash.

FHP says the black Pontiac, driven by 25-year-old Kenneth Jenkins of North Lauderdale, was the one headed south in the northbound lanes in Delray Beach early Sunday morning.

Jenkins is still in the hospital. Three people in a car hit by Jenkins were killed in the crash.

Previously: A car traveling down the interstate going the wrong direction causes a major commotion. Fox 29 was first on the scene.

The incident caused two separate crashes killing three people and sending several others to the hospital.

Investigators with the Florida Highway Patrol are working to determine which vehicle was traveling the wrong way causing all five lanes of northbound I-95 to shut down for hours.

According to FHP around 5 a.m. Sunday, a car pulled into the northbound lanes of 95 driving in the wrong direction. "The result of this vehicle traveling in the wrong direction caused both colisions to occur," says Lt. Tim Frith.

FHP says the wrong way car hit a vehicle with four people inside. Three of the individuals have died and one is in critical condition. That colision lead to another injuring more than half a dozen people.

Delray Beach Police Officer Stg. Toby Rubin, who was helping with the first accident, was among the injured.

FHP says in wasn't long before Rubin's police car was hit by an oncoming vehicle. "But the vehicle, you see that involved with his car, struck his patrol car and disabled it."

Delray Police say Sgt. Rubin has been released from the hospital with a broken angle. "It was really courageous of him to try and get the car stopped."

FHP has not released the names of the deceased or those involved in the crash. They tell us, they think, alcohol could have been factor in this deadly accident.
