Treacherous travel to south, east of D.C.

By Clarence Williams and Jennifer Buske

Be careful out there.

Many roads east and southeast of Washington, D.C., are icy, and authorities are reporting serious problems.

Maryland state police and transit officials report accidents in Prince George's near the Anne Arundel County line, including the closing of westbound Route 50 near Exit 193 and a two-vehicle crash on the outer loop of the Capital Beltway near Route 1.

State police announced a snow emergency for highways in Prince George's County just after 9 p.m., officials said.

In Virginia, Alexandria police shut down southbound Jefferson-Davis Highway at the Monroe Street bridge, to clear an accident that happened due to icy conditions, officials said.
