Three injured in crash on Bay Bridge

One person was flown to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore after a three-vehicle crash on the Bay Bridge Saturday morning.

Just after 11 a.m., three vehicles collided on the westbound span of the bridge, said 1st St. Jonathan Green of the Maryland Transportation Authority Police.

Two adult men were sent to Anne Arundel Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening and an adult woman was flown to Shock Trauma with life-threatening injuries. As of 5:45 p.m., Green said her condition was still critical, but stable.

The accident snarled traffic on either side of the Bay Bridge for several hours, but by early evening traffic from the beaches was back to normal. The first lane was reopened at 12:47 p.m., Green said. Second and third lanes were reopened at 1:17 p.m. and 1:27 p.m., respectively.

By 5:45 p.m. eastbound traffic on Route 50 was jammed back about four miles to exit 28 at Bay Dale Drive.

As of Saturday evening, Green did not have information on the names of those involved in the crash, and said charges could come at a later date. He did not have any information on how the accident occurred. The MdTA investigation is continuing.
