4 injured in 2 vehicle crashes on I-270 in Clarksburg

Four people were injured, one of them critically, following a pair of vehicle crashes just before noon Sunday on Interstate 270 in Clarskburg, Maryland.

A motorcycle and a car collided in the northbound lanes of I-270 near Md. Route 121/Clarksburg Road, according to Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief Jason Blake.

One person was transported with traumatic injuries to an area hospital, according to Blake.

A second crash happened after the first one, caused by a driver on the shoulder of the roadway, which sent three people to an area hospital with non life-threatening injuries, Blake said.
