Baltimore-Washington Parkway fatal accident shuts down lanes in both directions

(WJLA) - A fatal accident in Jessup on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway closed all lanes in both directions earlier Wednesday morning, but all lanes reopened at about 10:30 a.m.

A U.S. Park Police spokesman said the victim was an adult male who was struck and killed by a car after getting out of his vehicle just before 5 a.m. Wednesday morning. No information was immediately available regarding the victim's identity.

Southbound traffic on the Parkway was initially being diverted at Route 175 but police moved the detour further north to Route 100 in order to avoid the crash scene. Northbound traffic was being diverted at Route 32.
