All lanes are open on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway prior to MD 197 between Anne Arundel and Prince George's counties after a Thursday morning southbound accident involving a rolled car shut down southbound traffic for more than two hours.

State Highway Administration spokeswoman Lora Rakowski said lanes opened at 8:04 a.m.

The accident occurred about 5:50 a.m. on Thursday, and one passenger in the vehicle was taken to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries, said Paul Brooks, a spokesman for the U.S. Park Police.

Southbound traffic had been diverted onto Route 198, Park Police said.
