One person has died and four others are hurt after a crash overnight on Interstate 95 near Maryland Route 32, police say. 

Three cars were involved in a minor crash before 5:15 a.m. Tuesday, Maryland State Police said. The drivers pulled over to the side of the road to exchange information, and the registered owner of one of the cars, 36-year-old Jose Ismael Bonilla Reyes of Montgomery Village, arrived at the scene to check out the damage.

The driver of a northbound silver Honda Civic struck a blue Honda Accord involved in the minor crash, pushing the Accord into Reyes, police said. Reyes was pronounced dead at the scene.

A male was taken to R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland, and two males and a female were taken to Howard County General Hospital, police said. It's unclear if they were injured in the first crash or the second.

The driver of the Civic stayed at the scene.

Weather conditions may have been a factor in the crashes, police said.

Roads were slick in the D.C. area early Tuesday after a wintry mix of light rain and wet snow fell.

Three lanes were closed to traffic during the investigation.
