Crash Briefly Closes Northbound B-W Parkway
A single-vehicle crash that injured six people briefly closed all northbound lanes of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway from Good Luck Road to the Beltway this afternoon, snarling traffic for nearly five miles and complicating the afternoon commute.
The crash occurred just before 2 p.m. when a minivan with nine occupants left the road, rolled over and struck a tree, officials said.
One passenger suffered serious head trauma and was transported to Prince George's Hospital Center. Five others were transported to area hospitals with serious injuries; three passengers refused treatment, Schlosser said.
All of the passengers were in their 20s and 30s, officials said.
One northbound lane reopened by 3 p.m., but parkway traffic remained congested into the the afternoon commute.
