Fatal crash killed two people and closed westbound Route 50 Wednesday morning

The Maryland State Police said two people died in the crash just east of Bay Dale Drive a little after 2 a.m.

All westbound lanes of US 50 are shut down near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge after a fatal crash early Wednesday morning, and police expect them to remain closed through the morning rush hours. Three vehicles were involved in the crash.

The two people who were pronounced dead at the scene are believed to be the drivers of two of the vehicles. There were no other passengers in their vehicles. The driver and a passenger in the third vehicle were injured and taken to an area hospital. There is no word on their conditions.

All westbound lanes on Route 50 are closed at this time.

All lanes have since reopened, and WJZ's Mike Schuh is en route to the scene.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.

Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration personnel are on the scene and are detouring westbound traffic at Cape St. Clair Road.
