A vehicle flipped over on the Thomas J. Hatem Memorial Bridge Thursday at 3:11 p.m., according to Sgt. Jonathan Green of the Maryland Transportation Authority Police.
Green said the driver of the 2006 Mazda, the lone occupant, refused medical treatment at the scene. Traffic was shut down for 20 minutes on eastbound Route 40 as emergency personnel cleared the road.
"It appears the operator lost control of the vehicle, struck the jersey wall and overturned the vehicle," Green said. "Weather conditions were not a factor in the crash."
The crash came as a trial regarding a 2001 double fatal collision on the Hatem Bridge gets underway.
