    A five-car crash sent two people to the hospital and caused major delays on the Capital Beltway for Friday morning commuters.

    The crash occurred prior to River Road coming from the American Legion Bridge near exit 39/MD 190 and blocked all Inner Loop lanes and some Outer Loop lanes, police said.

    All lanes have reopened, the Maryland State Highway Administration says.

    Multiple vehicles collided about 7:15 a.m., causing an SUV to catch fire, Montgomery County Fire spokesman Pete Piringer says.
