Two back-to-back crashes at the Fort McHenry Tunnel in Baltimore on Thursday afternoon left one person injured and closed one of the tunnel's four traffic bores for more than an hour as emergency crews responded, according to Maryland Transportation Authority Police.
Emergency personnel responded about noon to the third northbound bore of the Interstate 95 tunnel and found two accidents involving three vehicles and a commercial truck, one just outside the tunnel and one inside of it, said Sgt. Kirk Perez, a police spokesman.
Her injury was not considered life-threatening, he said. No one else was injured.
Traffic backed up on I-95 while crews cleared the two accidents, Perez said. The tunnel was reopened at 1:09 p.m., he said.
The second northbound tunnel had remained open throughout the incident, he said.
