Drivers in Maryland should expect big delays Friday morning after a crash involving several vehicles shut down the Capital Beltway’s inner loop in Montgomery County.
Officials said all lanes of the Beltway’s inner loop near River Road and three left lanes on the outer loop are blocked, and warned drivers to expect “significant delays.”
Pete Piringer, a spokesman for Montgomery County Fire, said at least six people were involved, and two of them had serious injuries.
It’s not clear how long the delays will last.
