Collision on BW Parkway leaves 2 dead

Two people have died, including a juvenile, after a two-car crash on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway Saturday night.

It happened around 9:30 p.m. in the northbound lanes just after Maryland Route 197.

The juvenile was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries in critical condition but later died.

U.S. Park Police say the driver of one car died at the crash. That vehicle had no passengers.

The driver and three young passengers from the second car were all transported to the hospital.

That driver and the two surviving juveniles suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The Baltimore-Washington Parkway was closed between Maryland Route 197 and Maryland Route 198 for more than six hours for investigation, WTOP Traffic reports.

Police didn’t say whether the juveniles were kids or teens.

Below is a map of where the crash took place.
