Good morning all,

Washington woke up to a wet morning with high winds expected today. Let's see how the morning commute is being affected so far:

8:15 AM: An accident is being reported in the southbound lanes of Route 3 at Route 450 in Maryland. Emergency response teams are on the scene and vehicles are able to get by.

7:55 AM: Heavy fog and visibility issues are being reported on Route 121 in the Clarksburg, Md. area. Drive safely.

Update: 7:20 AM: The right, northbound lane of the Baltimore Washington Parkway reopened and the earlier incident has been moved to the right shoulder.

Update 7 AM: The right, northbound lane of the Baltimore Washington Parkway after Route 450 is still blocked due to the vehicle fire. The fire has been extinguished.

6:45 AM: A vehicle fire is being reported in the northbound lanes of the Baltimore Washington Parkway after Route 450. Traffic back-ups begin at Route 202.

--Update: 6:35 AM: the D.C. police officer suffered head injuries after the accident, but is still reported to be in stable condition at George Washington University hospital. The driver who hit the officer is expected to be charged with a DUI.

--Update: the officer was taken to a local hospital and is in stable condition.

--All lanes of the Key Bridge are now open after being closed over night because of an accident. A police officer investigating a traffic accident was struck by another vehicle, according to WTOP
