A serious accident closed the westbound lanes of the Route 250 Bypass this afternoon for over two hours.

It happened just before 1 p.m. near the exit for Ivy Road. A green Lexus traveling east on the bypass crossed the median and hit a red Pontiac head on.

A total of three people were injured in the wreck, but none sustained life threatening injuries. It took firefighters over an hour to extricate one of the victims.

All of the lanes of the Bypass were reopened around 3:30 p.m.
