Two people were killed and others were injured in a car accident at the Curtis Creek drawbridge that closed all lanes of eastbound Interstate 695 in Baltimore late Sunday night, according to the Baltimore Fire Department.

Rescue personnel were dispatched to the outer loop bridge at 10:01 p.m. and found at least five victims, a dispatcher said.

A Maryland Transportation Authority Police spokesman said 21-year-old Victoria DeAngelo of Dundalk entered the outer loop of 695 near exit 1 driving in the wrong direction Sunday night around 10. She then crashed into an SUV.

DeAngelo and a 3-year-old in the SUV, Lily Kelley, died. Kelley's mother, Kimberly Taylor, who was driving the SUV, and her 2-month-old sister were taken to a hospital. Taylor is in serious condition and her 2-month-old, Mackenzie Kelley, is in stable condition.

All outer loop lanes of the highway were closed late Sunday and would remain so "for a while," according to a Maryland Transportation Authority operator.
