Interstate Crash in Maryland After Motorcade Passes; 1 Dead

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Police say several vehicles have crashed at the intersection of two interstates in Maryland after a motorcade from Washington, D.C., passed through.

State Police spokeswoman Elena Russo says at least one person is dead, but the motorcade was not involved in the accident Wednesday. The motorcade was headed to West Virginia. Russo says she didn’t know who was in it.

State Police Lt. Wayne Wachsmuth tells The Frederick News-Post that two dump trucks and a passenger car had stopped to allow the motorcade to pass, and a third dump truck rear-ended the car.

The crash was at the intersection of interstates 70 and 270 near Frederick.

The Maryland State Highway Administration says on its website that the crash closed westbound lanes of I-70 and northbound off-ramp lanes of I-270.
