PARSONSBURG, Md. - A Maryland man is facing DUI and related charges following a three-vehicle crash Monday evening that shut down part of Route 50 in Wicomico County for several hours, according to police.

The Maryland State Police said the crash happened just after 6:15 Monday evening in the westbound lanes of Route 50 prior to Walston Switch Road in Parsonsburg. 

According to police, 22-year-old Eric Gibson, Jr., of Glen Burnie, Md., was speeding down Route 50 in a 2014 Nissan Versa when he attempted to pass between two other vehicles, then hit them.
