A small place crashed just off of Route 50 on Monday afternoon. Three people were taken to area hospitals.

Federal investigators will be looking into the crash of a small plane along westbound route 50 in Prince George's County, Maryland yesterday afternoon.

Maryland State Police say the single-engine four-seat aircraft crashed near Church Road, not far from the Freeway Airport. The crash brought traffic on Route 50 to a halt. The highway was closed in both directions for a time during the emergency response.

Three people were on board the plane. Prince George's County's Assistant Fire Cheif Alicia Francis says two men were taken Shock Trauma in Baltimore in critical condition and a woman was taken to Prince George's Hospital Center in serious condition. No one on the ground was injured.

A spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration's Eastern Region confirms the agency will investigate the crash.
