CHESTER, Md. — A major crash on eastbound US Route 50 shutdown traffic overnight into Wednesday morning.

It happened just before 2am near MD 552 in between Chester and Kent Narrows.

Jeffrey Shultz captured video of the fiery aftermath.

He recalls hearing "big explosions," that even shook some houses in the area.

Shultz believes a semi-truck was involved, although state officials have not yet commented on the situation.

The Maryland State Highway Administration reopened the road around 11am.

It's unclear what caused the crash or if anyone was injured.
