Two incidents in Baltimore area suburbs, including a fatal crash in Howard County, forced road closures during Thursday morning's rush hour.

Howard County Police said that traffic on Business Parkway is closed in both directions due to a fatal collision in Elkridge. Police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn said that a female driver on a scooter was struck by a box truck in the westbound lane of Business Parkway. Police were called to the scene around 6:10 a.m., and the driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

The state Department of Transportation reported a single vehicle collision in Baltimore County on Interstate 83 South at the Padonia Road exit at 8:58 a.m., that closed two of three southbound traffic lanes and the southbound right off ramp lane.

The Maryland Transit Authority is reporting minor delays on the light rail at 9:05 a.m.
