CHEVY CHASE, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a fatal crash on the Capital Beltway in Montgomery County is slowing traffic during the morning commute.

Police say one person was killed when a car and a tractor-trailer collided on the Inner Loop near Connecticut Avenue in Chevy Chase about 3 a.m. Friday. The accident caused the car to catch fire.

At 6:30 a.m., two lanes of the Beltway remained closed and the on- and off-ramps at Connecticut Avenue were also blocked.
