Maryland Route 50 East was shut down just west of I-97 early this morning for a single vehicle, fatal crash. All lanes were re-opened around 8:00am. Route 50 is the primary conduit for traffic headed to the beach.
Just before 4am, Anne Arundel County fire crews were dispatched to the scene where they found a femal had been ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. Another person was transported to Anne Arundel Medical Center.
Further details are unknown at this time. ABC7Dan, a follower of Eye On Annapolis was reporting from the scene via twitter. The tweeets with links, contain images of the traffic backups.
