Three people were killed in a single-car crash on a ramp at the intersection of two major Baltimore freeways Tuesday afternoon, State Police said. Early investigation suggested the vehicle was traveling southbound on Interstate 83 when, for reasons which have not been determined, it left the roadway and went into a heavily wooded area on the left side of the road and then struck a large tree, police said. The impact of the crash caused the car to break into pieces. Police received a call at around 4 p.m. from a citizen who said he saw a vehicle off the roadway on the southbound I-83 ramp on to the outer loop of Interstate 695 in Timonium, but the exact time of the accident is not known, according to a news release.

SHA closing Beltway ramp to Frederick Road for a month The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) closed the ramp from I-695 South (Beltway outer loop) to Route 144 (Frederick Road) on Sept. 9.  The temporary ramp closure is expected to last approximately one month and is part of SHA's $16.5 million project to replace the Frederick Road bridge over the Baltimore Beltway and improve safety and traffic operations at the interchange. The new bridge will be slightly taller, to accommodate truck traffic, and that requires the ramp to be raised slightly.  The ramp will re-open in mid- October, weather permitting.

As one highway ramp in Brooklyn reopens, another is set to close. A ramp designed to carry South Baltimore traffic onto the northbound lanes of Interstate 895 that has been closed for nearly six months is set to reopen on Saturday, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority. A week later, a ramp carrying southbound I-895 traffic into the same part of the city - near Potee Street and Patapsco Avenue, in Brooklyn - will close, at least for several months. Both moves are the result of an ongoing, $12.6 million state transportation project to replace the decks of the bridges that carry I-895 over Patapsco Avenue and Potee and Hanover streets, the MdTA said.

The driver of the pickup, 62-year-old Harvey Fisher, died at the scene, while the driver of the tractor-trailer, Raymond Shelton Jr., 53, of Lincoln, Del., suffered minor injuries, police said.

It's been about a year since the State Highway Administration closed the Route 32 exit ramp to U.S. 1 in Savage because too many cars were getting hit while nudging their way into traffic.The State Highway Administration replaced that ramp with an intersection that includes a traffic light for vehicles coming off TTC Route 32 -- a change that pleases highway officials and residents.Accident figures are not available for 1994, but in 1993 there were three ramp-related accidents, two that happened before the July 1993 closing of the ramp.
