Fuel Truck Overturns, Shuts Down I-95 Near Capital Beltway

By    |   Wednesday, 11 Mar 2015 05:41 AM

A tanker truck overturned on Interstate 95 in Maryland on Tuesday, spilling about 400 gallons of bio-diesel fuel and keeping the southbound lanes closed just north of the Capital Beltway around the District of Columbia.

The tanker overturned south of state Route 198 near Laurel, bringing traffic to a halt in both directions for more than two hours until the northbound lanes were reopened, reported The Associated Press.

Highway officials said cleanup would likely extend into the afternoon rush hour.

Local media showed aerial shots of the tanker lying across four lanes, pushing into barrier walls along the median. State police say three passenger vehicles were also involved.

Prince George's County fire officials said two people, including the tanker driver, were evaluated, but didn't need to be taken to a hospital.
