Two Dead In Rt. 50 Annapolis Crash (Route 50 Shut Down)


(ANNAPOLIS, MD) — Shortly after 2:00 a.m. today, troopers from the Annapolis Barrack were dispatched to Rt. 50 at the Severn River Bridge after a call was received reporting a vehicle traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes of Rt. 50. Moments later, a trooper in the area came upon a crash scene at westbound Rt. 50 and Bay Dale Drive. Three vehicles were involved in the crash.

All lanes of westbound Rt. 50 were closed. Fire and rescue units responded. Two people were pronounced dead at the scene. They are believed to be the drivers of two of the vehicles involved. There were no other passengers in their vehicles. The driver and passenger of the third vehicle were both injured and transported to the Anne Arundel County Medical Center for treatment.

Due to the detailed investigation required and the extensive crash scene, all lanes of Rt. 50 at Bay Dale are closed and are expected to remain closed for the next several hours. MD Department of Transportation State Highway Administration personnel are on the scene and are detouring westbound traffic at Cape St. Clair Road.

The cause of the crash has not been confirmed at this time. Troopers from the MD State Police Crash Team are on the scene conducting a detailed reconstruction and investigation. Further details will be provided later today after the initial investigation has been completed and families have been notified.


Editor's Note: Route 50 Westbound is currently backed up to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

I believe so. It is a very confusing area for those not familiar. I pray something is done to correct this. May they RIP.

Evertime i go over the bridge to visit my mom its so crazy. Coming home from AA county i get on at rt2 and rt 50. When I do its a scramble to get into a lane and people are weaving and speeding in and out.I have been over the severn bridge many many times on 97, it too gets crazy when everyone starts coming on the ramps to get to the 50 bridge. So many people have to merge into such a tight area. Accidents are becoming worse on the west side of md every year.I rarely go over anymore, my mother usually comes here to visit me and my sister.
