ROCKVILLE, Md. (WDVM) — A woman died Tuesday morning in a three-vehicle crash on Rt 28, near the ramp from southbound I-270 in Rockville, Maryland, police said.

The incident was reported shortly after 9 a.m.

Five people in total were involved in the crash, police said. Two people were taken to the hospital with serious injuries. One passenger had non-life threatening injuries, and another person did not report any injuries. Police identified the woman who died as 74-year-old Amanda Motta of Gaithersburg. She was in the backseat of the second vehicle.

The Montgomery County Department of Police tweeted at 1:30 p.m. the ramp from I-270 southbound onto westbound Rt. 28 was closed. Rt 28 between Hurley Ave and Nelson St was also closed.
