Accident closes Bay Bridge for hour
The Maryland Transportation Authority says an accident temporarily closed the eastbound span of the Bay Bridge and backed up traffic for miles in each direction.
The accident closed the span for more than an hour at midday Sunday. The transportation authority said the accident along with traffic from a bay swim event led to backups that stretched up to five miles.
Sgt. Jonathan Green, a spokesman for the transportation authority police, said the three-vehicle accident injured a total of seven, although none of the injuries were considered life-threatening.
Green said the 11 a.m. accident involved a sports utility vehicle, a tractor trailer that rear-ended the SUV, and a pick up truck that struck the tractor trailer. Green said all of the injured were in the sports utility vehicle.
