Tanker Truck Capsizes on Busy Commuter Route

ASHBURN, Va. (CBSDC) – A tanker truck overturned on a busy commuter highway Thursday morning, bringing traffic to a halt for several hours.

The truck, loaded with gasoline, capsized on the Dulles Greenway near Shreve Mill Road around 5:25 a.m. Thursday.   Police and fire crews were able to investigate and clean-up the mess a lot quicker than Wednesday’s overturned truck on I-95.
