LAUREL, Md. (AP) -- One man is dead after driving his car the wrong way on Interstate 95 in Prince George's County and crashing head-on with a tractor-trailer.
Maryland State Police say 22-year-old Christian Allen Knight of Olney was killed in the crash early Sunday. The driver of the truck, Vernelle Crudup of Wendell, N.C., was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
Northbound I-95 was closed for several hours while police investigated and the crash scene was cleared.
Investigators say it's not clear why Knight was driving the wrong way on the interstate.
