2 injured in I-97 crash

Monday, 04 December 2017, 11:27:25 PM. Two people were injured in a 3-car crash on I-97 South at Route 3 Monday morning.

Two people were injured and emergency responders briefly shut down one lane of Interstate 97 Monday following a three-car crash in Millersville.

Capt. Russ Davies, a spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Fire Department, said firefighters responded at 6:45 a.m. to a report of an accident on I-97 southbound near Exit 7.

Davies said three cars were involved, and two people suffered minor injuries. One person was taken to Baltimore Washington Medical Center in Glen Burnie and the other to Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis.

The crash caused a significant backup on the highway during the height of the morning commute.

Davies said police and firefighters briefly shut down the left lane of I-97 southbound near Exit 7 — a notorious spot for bottlenecks where three lanes reduce to two near the interchange. Traffic was backed up as far as Route 100 at 7:45 a.m.
