CROWNSVILLE -- A two-vehicle accident on Interstate 97 yesterday morning tied up traffic on the highway and Route 50 for more than an hour, state police said.

At 8:17 a.m., a Jeep sideswiped a Saturn on northbound I-97 about three miles north of Route 50, police said. The driver of the Jeep was thrown from her vehicle but suffered only minor injuries, said state police Cpl. Leon Forman.

She was treated at Maryland Shock Trauma Center and released. There were no other injuries.

One lane of the interstate was closed for less than 10 minutes while the accident was cleared to the shoulder, Forman said. No charges have been filed.
