At approximately 1:15 p.m, two left lanes were shut down on I-95 south so first responders could clear the scene between the exit for MD Route 152 and MD Route 24, the fire company reported. Joppa-Magnolia and Abingdon Fire were at the scene, according to the report.

All lanes had reopened by 2:15 p.m., according to the Maryland Transportation Authority, which said traffic was backed up for 1.5 miles during the closure.
