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.
