A multi-vehicle crash caused significant delays on Interstate-83 near Cockeysville on Wednesday afternoon, according to the state highway administration and police.

A car collided with a Jeep at about 3 p.m., flipped and became wedged underneath a tanker truck, state police Sgt. Douglas Forrester said. A picture from the scene showed a badly damaged car, but police said the driver suffered injuries not considered life-threatening.

The accident closed all northbound lanes above Padonia Road for nearly two hours, though the vehicles were moved to the shoulder and traffic began moving again at about 5 p.m., police said.

The state also said traffic signals had been re-timed on York and Falls roads because of the crash.
