An accident involving two motorcycles and a jeep along northbound Interstate 95 in Howard County Sunday afternoon sent both motorcyclists to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center and closed three travel lanes for about 45 minutes, according to Maryland State Police.

The two motorcyclists were taken to Shock Trauma in critical and serious condition, respectively, according to Marc Fischer, a Howard County Fire & Rescue spokesman. Neither was identified, nor was the driver of the jeep, who was not injured.

Police could not immediately provide details on how the accident occurred.

The lane closures caused traffic to back up along I-95 through Laurel and Jessup.
