August 15, 2008|By Richard Irwin

A 10-vehicle collision on the inner loop of the Beltway near Pikesville sent six people to hospitals last night and tied up traffic for more than an hour, state police at the Golden Ring barracks said.

Police said the vehicles collided about 9 p.m. near the Stevenson Road exit ramp. At least one of the autos caught fire.

Three people were taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center. St. Joseph Medical Center and Greater Baltimore Medical Center treated the other three people.

The names of the injured and their conditions were not available.

Police said the crashes caused a three-mile backup past Liberty Road. Traffic resumed about 10:30 p.m.

Police said one driver caught in the traffic backup called the barracks and complained that he didn't have enough gas to idle.

State police were investigating the cause of the accident.
