April 04, 2010

Baltimore police were investigating a fatal motorcycle accident that closed the northbound lanes of Interestate-83 downtown for three and a half hours Sunday evening.

The accident took place just south of Penn Station at 5:35 and closed the northbound lanes of I-83 from Fayette Street until the Penn Station area until 9 p.m., said police spokesman Donny Moses. A 40-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash after the motorcycle she was driving lost control and hit the right wall of the highway, Moses said.

Police did not release the woman's name.
