Driver dies in crash with tractor-trailer on Route 50
A fatal crash shut down an acceleration lane and shoulder lane of eastbound Route 50 near the Capitol Beltway, authorities said Wednesday afternoon.
Details about the crash, which occurred shortly before 4 p.m., remained scant. Police said a car was underneath a tractor-trailer, and one occupant inside the car was obviously deceased. It was unclear if the occupant was a man or a woman.
A sergeant at the Maryland State Police College Park barrack said traffic in the area was moving.
He said crews were working to remove the tractor trailer from the car and reconstruct the crash.
