Accident Slows Beltway In Maryland

A multiple-vehicle accident earlier this morning on the Beltway is causing delays for drivers as the morning rush picks up. The Maryland State Police reported that two tractor-trailers and six other vehicles were involved in the accident, which took place on the outer loop of the Beltway to the west of Connecticut Avenue. The state police reported to it at 6:50 a.m.

7:30 A.M. UPDATE: There are no lane closures related to this accident, the Maryland State Police reported. Three lanes of I-495/the outer loop were closed due to the accident, but they have reopened and the tractor-trailers have been moved to the shoulder. The tractor-trailers are now waiting to be towed.

8:30 A.M. UPDATE: Everything is cleared from the scene and traffic should be chugging along (well, as best the Beltway during the morning rush can chug along).
