Flood warnings and rain are the order of the day across Maryland and Washington, DC as heavy rain is expected to continue, including up to six inches in the Baltimore area by Friday. Weather has played a role in a number of road closures and crashes throughout the region, from car crashes to tractor trailers.
At 7:30 a.m., the Baltimore City Department of Transportation reported a car crash on the Jones Falls Expressway in Woodberry. It occurred in the left lane northbound near the Pepsi sign, during the morning rush.
In Montgomery County, high water caused a road closure and several single-car accidents, including on I-95. Also in Montgomery County, there was another accident where a tractor-trailer jackknifed on the Beltway. The accident happened before 7:00 a.m. on the outer loop at Georgia Avenue in the area of the Key Bridge and resulted in the tractor trailer overturning and spilling fuel on the Beltway.
The Maryland Transportation Authority reported that the crash involved other vehicles and traffic on both the inner and outer loop were closed after the crash. The outer loop reopened as of noon, but traffic congestion continues to be a problem as a result of the closures.
If you or someone you know is involved in a car or truck accident and are injured, always seek medical help first. Then ask these questions:
“Could this accident and my injuries have been prevented?”
“Did this happen due to the actions or negligence of someone else?”
