SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) — Nine people have been taken to hospitals after an accident on the Beltway involving a tractor-trailer and multiple cars.
The conditions of the nine patients weren’t immediately known, though fire officials say several people suffered serious injuries.
The crash Tuesday caused traffic backups on the both the inner and outer loops of the Beltway. Cleanup is still in progress.
