A serious three-car crash in Bel Air sent two people to regional hospitals Thursday, Maryland State Police said.
The crash was reported at 2:35 p.m. Thursday in the southbound lanes of the Bel Air Bypass, prior to the intersection with Route 24. According to state police, a driver attempted to swerve their vehicle to avoid a braking or stopped vehicle in the left-hand turn lane onto Route 24, but clipped that vehicle, went into a spin, and was struck by a vehicle in the right-hand lane. The spinning car overturned, and came to rest just off the roadway.
Two patients were transported from the scene to the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center; one patient was then taken to the University of Maryland R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.
Portions of the roadway through the area was closed for approximately two and a half hours, state police said.
Additional details were expected later Thursday evening.
