(WJLA) - The inner loop of the beltway reopened Tuesday after a crash in Prince George's County earlier in the morning forced police to shut down all lanes.

Maryland State Police said the accident, which blocked inner loop traffic at Ritchie-Marlboro Road, involved four cars and a tractor trailer. Police did not provide any information on injuries.

The accident had initially shut down all lanes of traffic on the Beltway for roughly 45 minutes but police reopened the inner loop's far right lane around 6:40 a.m. Tuesday.
