Rainy weather contributed to a series of collisions Friday on roads in Anne Arundel County, including a serious crash on the Baltimore Washington Parkway and another three-car incident in Crofton.
Division Chief Keith Swindle, a spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Fire Department, said units responded to six crashes between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m., snarling traffic in many areas.
The crash on the Baltimore Washington Parkway happened at about 7:30 a.m. and involved an SUV that had rolled over near the Connector Road exit. At 8 a.m., firefighters were still working to extricate one victim from the vehicle.
Earlier in the morning in Crofton, three cars collided near the intersection of Reidel Road and Route 424. The crash took place at about 5 a.m. and led to a closure of the road for some time.
