Four people were hospitalized after a tanker carrying 6,000 gallons of milk overturned on Interstate 95 North in Howard County, closing all lanes of the expressway for hours Wednesday, police and fire officials said.
Three of the victims were taken to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center; the other was taken to Howard County General Hospital, according to Maryland State Police. Their conditions were not released.
The truck crashed with another vehicle about 1:30 p.m. just north of the exit for Route 100, State Police said. The Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services earlier reported that three people had been injured.
The crash caused traffic backups; all lanes of the highway reopened about 5 p.m.
