Two people were killed after a crash on Route 50 in Annapolis early Wednesday morning, according to Maryland State Police.

Troopers were dispatched just after 2 a.m. to Route 50 at the Severn River Bridge after a call was received of a car traveling in the wrong direction—eastbound in the westbound lanes—of Route 50. A trooper found the crash scene with three cars involved at westbound Route 50 and Bay Dale Drive.

The two victims are believed to be the drivers of the cars involved. There were no other passengers in their vehicles. Two people in a third car were injured and taken to the Anne Arundel County Medical Center for treatment.  

All lanes of Route 50 at Bay Dale Drive have reopened following an investigation.

The cause of the crash is not yet known.
