A fatal car crash is causing heavy traffic on the Beltway this morning.

A fatal car accident on Connecticut Avenue and 1-495 on the outer loop is causing heavy traffic on the Beltway this morning. Drivers are stuck in 4 miles of heavy congestion, between Georgia Avenue and New Hampshire Avenue.

The crash comes after an earlier accident over the Sligo Creek Parkway overpass, between Georgia Avenue and Colesville Road. Three lanes are open on the Beltway, with traffic backed up all the way to where I-495 and I-95 meet.
