MONTGOMERY CO. – Multiple people were injured in a car crash that involved about 20 vehicles on I-270 Monday morning, officials say.

A Montgomery County spokesperson says a tractor-trailer carrying stones and gravel abruptly changed lanes, lost the road and collided with vehicles. Following vehicles could not avoid and consequently became involved in the crash.

EMS declared the incident a mass casualty and evaluated over two dozen patients.

Officials say a few patients were taken to the hospital and there were several traumas.

An EMS spokesperson says none of the injuries are life threatening.
