On his Twitter account, Fire and Rescue Services Spokesperson Pete Piringer reported that one of the vehicles went into a wooded area and it took rescue crews 30 minutes to extricate the driver.

Piringer said all lanes of southbound I-270 were closed until 5 p.m. or more than 90 minutes after the crash occurred.
