Five injured in 3 overnight I-695 work zone crashes

AmbulancePARKVILLE, MD – Two construction workers and a driver were injured on Friday morning in the third overnight crash Maryland State Police have responded to in work zones on the Baltimore Beltway.

Two male highway workers were transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment of injuries. One was flown by Maryland State Police helicopter and the other was transported by ambulance. The female driver was taken by ambulance to the University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center for treatment of injuries. Identities are being withheld until families are notified.

At about 3:00 a.m. on Friday, a state trooper performing working MDOT State Highway Administration work zone enforcement reported that a crash had just occurred on the inner loop of I-695 at the Harford Road exit. Additional troopers and fire/rescue personnel responded to the scene.

Authorities say the driver of an SUV drove into the construction zone and struck the rear of an unoccupied pickup truck. The pickup truck was pushed forward into the two construction workers.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation. There is no indication of alcohol/drug impairment at this time. The active work zone was marked and a state trooper working an overtime assignment at the assignment had the emergency lights activated on his patrol car when the crash occurred.

All lanes of the inner loop of I-695 were initially shut down due to the crash investigation and cleanup. MDOT SHA personnel are on the scene assisting with detours around the area.

Just after 1:00 a.m. on Friday, troopers responded to the same work zone at Harford Road for the first of the three overnight crashes. A truck carrying construction equipment was slowing to enter the work zone when it was struck in the rear by a driver who failed to slow down. The driver of the passenger car was taken by ambulance to Sinai Hospital.

Shortly after 2:30 a.m. on Friday, two vehicles on the outer loop of I-695 at Providence Road failed to merge as the lanes reduced due to construction. The vehicles collided and drove off the roadway into a wooded area nearby. One driver was taken by ambulance to Franklin Square Hospital.
