Baltimore police originally wrote in a tweet at 11:04 a.m. that I-83 has been shut down from the Cold Spring Lane exit following a fatal crash. The northbound stretch of the highway was reopened just before 2 p.m., but the southbound Cold Spring Lane exit remained closed.

Photos on social media that appear to depict the crash show at least one large truck resting on its side after having crashed into the median barrier, with its side partially on fire. Some photos and video showed people out of their cars trying to help the driver escape the truck.
