PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. — A car in flames that led to a crash and injuries closed down all lanes of eastbound U.S. Route 50 in Prince George’s County Monday morning.
All lanes were blocked off on 50 eastbound before US-301 (Exit 13) initially. Three lanes have since reopened and delays of approximately two miles have been reported as of 9 a.m.
