COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WUSA9) -- Prince George's County Fire/EMS says a serious crash on Route 1 just north of the North Gate to the University of Maryland College Park closed parts of Route 1.

University of Maryland officials say Route 1 is now opened.

Fire officials say two law enforcement motorcycle officers, one from Montgomery County and the other from St. Mary's County, were involved in the multi-vehicle crash at approximately noon on Monday.

A spokesperson says one of the officers lost control of his motorcyle and fell, causing the other to get distracted and lose control of his bike as well. They suffered non-life threatening injuries, say officials. Medics have transported them to a trauma center.
