(WJLA) - A three-vehicle crash in the southbound lanes of Interstate 270 near Maryland Route 28 has created major traffic backups for the Monday morning commute.

Investigators initially closed all lanes of traffic along southbound 270 but have since opened a shoulder lane to backed-up traffic. Authorities said that the driver of one vehicle was ejected from the car as a result of the crash but did not provide any information on the victim's condition.
