1 dead, another seriously injured in BW Parkway crash

One man died and another was seriously injured after an early Sunday morning crash on the Northbound Baltimore-Washington Parkway, according to U.S. Park Police.

The crash happened around 3:45 a.m. and closed the northbound stretch of the parkway from Greenbelt Road to Powder Mill road for over four hours, according to the WTOP Traffic Center.

The road reopened around 8 a.m.

All northbound traffic on the parkway was diverted to Greenbelt Road, at which point the WTOP Traffic Center reported Route 1 and Interstate 95 were viable options for drivers.

Traffic on the southbound portion of the parkway was unaffected.

WTOP’s Mary De Pompa contributed to this report. This story will be updated.
