Original post: An accident that occurred on I-395 northbound near exit 10C about 8:30 p.m. Sunday shut down traffic on the inbound portion of the 14th Street Bridge while authorities investigated.

Emergency personnel are currently on the scene, where an SUV is reported to have overturned. Traffic cameras show that motorists can now get by to the right.

All of the inbound lanes were closed for about an hour. Expect some delays in the area.

====================================
An SUV. What a surprise. SUV drivers think they're invincible...regardless of road conditions...and that traffic laws do not apply to them.

The individuals I see driving these behemoth vechicles (including PU trucks) appear to be uncomfortable and afraid to drive them and fit into two categories, i.e., ones who brake excessively and driving more than three car lengths from the vehicle ahead of them. The others are really aggressive!! Running up behind you during the morning hours with the headlights to the max!! I don't think they realize that loosing control in one of these vehicles are near/close to 100%! Scary.
