Baltimore, MD – A three-vehicle accident along the eastbound lanes of the Bay Bridge on Sunday, June 13, 2010, resulted in seven people being taken to hospitals, as reported by The Baltimore Sun. The accident closed the lanes for approximately two hours.
A spokesman for the Maryland transportation authority police told reporters a teenager was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center and six others were transported to an area hospital following the collision. No person’s injuries were considered life threatening.
The accident happened at approximately 11 a.m., after the driver of a GMC Acadia slowed down. The Acadia was rear ended by a tractor trailer, which was then hit by a Ford pickup truck. Those who were injured were riding in the Acadia. No names were released.
The accident closed the eastbound lanes until approximately 1 p.m., according to the transportation authority police spokesman. Traffic was backed up for five miles.
The westbound span of the bridge was affected by the crash as well, and experienced delays as one of the three lanes were re-directed eastbound.
