Traffic is moving again on Interstate 83 after a crash involving a box truck shut down the highway in both directions Thursday morning in Baltimore County, according to Maryland highway officials.

The crash happened on I-83 North before Exit 36 in Parkton, officials said. The crash was reported at 6:47 a.m. by the Maryland Coordinated Highways Action Response Team.

All lanes were shut down for several hours. The Maryland State Highway Administration said southbound lanes were open around 10:30 a.m., followed by the northbound lanes about an hour later.

Maryland State Police believe the driver of a box truck was traveling south when he crossed over to the northbound lanes, drove off the road and crashed into a tree. No other vehicles were involved.
