Driver Killed in Beltway Crash

An unidentified man was killed early yesterday when his car slammed into the rear of another car on the outer loop of the Capital Beltway near Route 1 in Prince George's County, Maryland State Police said.

Police said excessive speed appeared to be a factor in the crash. The outer loop was shut down for several hours.
