A fatal crash shut down northbound lanes of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway in Prince George’s County Friday morning, officials said.

One man was pronounced dead on the scene, and a second man was taken to a hospital by helicopter. He has life-threatening injuries, U.S. Park Police said.

Multiple vehicles crashed on the northbound lanes just south of Powder Mill Road about 7:15 a.m., the Metropolitan Area Transportation Operations Coordination (MATOC) Program said.

Northbound lanes reopened hours later, U.S. Park Police said. Traffic had been diverted onto Route 193, resulting in lengthy delays.
