The crash happened just after 2 a.m. on the Outer Loop between Colesville Road and Georgia Avenue and involved a tractor-trailer and at least two other vehicles.
One person died and an accident reconstruction team was called to the scene.
The road was closed completely until about 6:10 a.m. when two lanes re-opened.
