October 14, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A three-car accident on the Bay Bridge last night injured five people and backed up traffic for three miles, Maryland Transportation Authority Police said.

Police said a westbound 1993 Hyundai hit the rear of a 1992 Oldsmobile about 7: 30 p.m., then overturned and hit a 1991 Acura that also was westbound.

State police helicopters took a 4-year-old child to the pediatric unit of Johns Hopkins Hospital and another victim to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. Three others were treated at Anne Arundel Medical Center, police said.

Police closed the westbound span and opened the eastbound span to two-way traffic.
