No one was injured in a two-car crash on the Francis Scott Key Bridge late Friday afternoon that strangled rush hour traffic.
At 3:53 p.m., officers from the Maryland Transportation Authority Police responded to the crash that happened at the top of the span, according to department spokesman First Sgt. Jonathan Green.
The crash was contained to the left lane of the northbound section of the span, and traffic was able to get by in the right lane until both lanes were closed to upright a car that flipped on its side and remove it from the bridge, Green said in an email to Patch.
A 2004 Ford Explorer and a 2003 Acura sedan were involved in the crash. The Acura slowed because of heavy traffic and was rear-ended by the Explorer, according to Green. The Acura came to a rest on its side after being struck.
There were no passengers in either vehicle and no one was injured, Green said.
No southbound lanes were closed during the incident but traffic was backed up for a little more than a mile in the northbound lanes of I-695 (Baltimore Beltway).
