March 18, 2010|By Peter Hermann | | Baltimore Sun reporter

Wreckage from a two-car accident this morning on southbound Interstate 95 near the Baltimore Beltway has been cleared and all lanes reopened, easing a backup during the morning commute, according to police.

The accident occurred about 6:15 a.m. near Caton Avenue, temporarily forcing police to shut down all four lanes.

Cpl. Jonathan Green, a spokesman for the Maryland Transportation Authority Police, said the two vehicles collided and spun across the busy highway. One driver was taken to University of Maryland Medical Center with minor injuries; the driver of the other car was not injured.

Maryland State Police had originally reported that one car caught fire, but Green said there are no reports of a blaze. Police reopened the highway at 6:45 a.m.
