Both lanes were closed for about an hour after a car went off the roadway and into a construction area.

FREDERICK, Md. Both lanes of U.S. 15 southbound were closed for about an hour this afternoon due to an accident just before 5 p.m. Saturday.

The driver was injured and flown to the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.
