Tractor trailer overturns after collision on US Route 50 in Anne Arundel County
DAVIDSONVILLE, Md. - A collision between a tractor trailer and a vehicle caused major delays Tuesday night on a highway in Anne Arundel County.
The tractor trailer was involved in a crash with another vehicle on the eastbound lanes of U.S. Route 50 east of Route 301 in Davidsonville at around 8:15 p.m., Maryland State Police say.
Two of the three eastbound lanes were shut down as first responders worked to transport victims to the hospital and for the investigation of the crash.
Dashcam video obtained by FOX 5 from Rhys Robinson of Express Carrier Services shows the tractor trailer traveling in the left lane of the highway when it attempts to change lanes into the middle lane where a white sedan was already traveling alongside it. The white vehicle ends up losing control and crashes into the tractor trailer causing the large vehicle to overturn. The sedan would end up crashing into a barrier on the right shoulder.
Police say some of the victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Their condition is unknown at this time.
Major backups were seen on Route 50 and drivers were being advised to avoid the area.
