Two people were injured, one seriously, when a tractor trailer and a passenger car crashed on I-95 Sunday night, flipping the 18-wheeler on its side and setting it on fire.
All southbound lanes of I-95 were closed in the area of Brooklyn Bridge Road in Laurel, near the Howard County-Prince George's County line, according to Mark Brady, PGFD PIO.
Two patients were transported for treatment, one to a local hospital with minor injuries, one to a trauma center with serious, non-life-threatening injuries.
The tractor trailer is carrying produce, Brady says.
