ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, Md. — U.S. Park Police confirm that one person was killed in an early morning crash on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway.
At a little before 2:40 a.m., firefighters responded to a 911 call reporting a motor vehicle collision in the area of northbound Route 295 and Route 32. While they were in route, police had already advised that two patients were trapped and that one possibly had fatal injuries.
Firefighters arrived and found a two-vehicle accident that involved an SUV and a sedan. They were advised that the SUV hit the sedan from behind and caused it to overturn.
