Overturned truck snarls traffic, spills fuel on I-495

A tractor-trailer carrying a shipment of chicken nuggets overturned Wednesday on the Beltway, leading to the closure of the Outer Loop for about 90 minutes while spilled diesel fuel was cleaned up.

The crash was reported at about 2 p.m. at the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and closed several lanes and ramps. The tractor-trailer flipped on its side and 150 gallons of fuel began flowing onto the roadway, Prince George's County fire department spokesman Mark Brady said.

A passenger vehicle also was involved in the crash. The driver of the tractor-trailer and an occupant from the other vehicle were injured and taken to hospitals. Neither of the individuals' injuries were life-threatening, Mr. Brady said.

About half of the tank's fuel spilled onto the roadway, Mr. Brady said. Hazardous materials crews offloaded the rest of the fuel from the tank.
