At least two of three westbound lanes and the westbound shoulder were closed as of 8:15 a.m., and a traffic camera showed vehicles crawling along I-70 just west of Interstate 695.

One person was transported from the scene by ambulance to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, according to the Baltimore County Fire Department, which responded at 7:56 a.m.
