Several Car Crashes Reported During Rainy Morning Commute

There were no serious injuries


Published:

A number of car crashes were reported during a rainy rush hour Thursday morning, despite fewer commuters than usual on the roads.

None of the accidents, however, caused serious injury or snarled traffic, Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service spokesman Pete Piringer said.

Piringer said the number of crashes was lower than during a typical rush hour.

“But this is not a typical rush hour time of year,” he said.

Temperatures were above freezing in Montgomery County during the morning commute.

The reported wrecks are:

— On I-495 between Connecticut and Georgia avenues

— Northbound Rockville Pike at Cedar Lane

— Rockville Pike ramp to northbound I-270

— Westbound Gaither Road at Shady Grove Road

— Lyttonsville Road at Lyttonsville Place
