UPDATE (4:25 p.m.): Cedar Lane has reopened.


The Howard County Police Department reported the following on Twitter at 12:05pm:

COLUMBIA: Cedar Lane between Harriet Tubman Lane and Grace Drive is CLOSED for a single-vehicle collision (overturned trash truck) with serious injuries. Extended closure. Will update.

At 12:42 they updated the situation:

UPDATE: Cedar Lane closure is extended north to Freetown Road. Drivers are being diverted at Grace Drive/Freetown Road while police investigate.

A blog reader (Carol A.) sent Scott E’s Blog the following photos:

Carol told Scott E’s Blog at 3:25pm “about 30 minutes ago they were starting to upright the truck. Road still closed”.

I will try and update the story as HCPD releases more information.
