Maryland State Police Troopers were called to I-270 near mile marker 27 around 10:30 a.m. after reports of a crash. They later determined a tractor-trailer had stopped in lane two due to heavy traffic and a small SUV failed to stop, hitting the back of the trailer. 

The SUV had major damage and the driver was pronounced dead at the scene.
