3-vehicle crash closes lanes of Beltway
Updated, 5:15 a.m. Wednesday:
One lane of the Capital Beltway's inner loop has reopened in Prince George's County, as authorities investigate a multi-vehicle crash from late Tuesday night.
The far left lane and shoulder are open, but three lanes and the Darcy Road overpass remain closed, said authorities with Maryland State Police and Prince George's County police.
Maryland State Police said they could not say when the lanes would reopen.
The inner loop was shut down just after 11 p.m. near the intersection with Darcy Road after a tractor-trailer caught fire in a three-vehicle crash, Maryland State police and Prince George's County fire officials said.
Fire officials said the driver of the tractor-trailer had not been located, and that he could still be in the truck's cab. The truck struck a bridge embankment of the Darcy Road overpass, and the underside of the bridge was damaged by fire, officials said. The overpass sustained significant damage and will remain closed until authorities can make sure it's safe, officials said.
One person was evaluated at the scene by medics, but no other injuries were reported.
