LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — All lanes of the Inner Loop of the Capital Beltway in Lanham have reopened after a nasty tractor-trailer accident closed portions of the roadway for hours.

Authorities say the truck overturned after careening off the road and crashing into a concrete sound barrier just before the Route 450/Annapolis Road exit around 11 p.m. Monday.

All lanes of the Beltway were blocked for 90 minutes before authorities were able to allow traffic to pass in the far two left lanes.

Traffic delays continued into the morning rush hour as Haz-Mat crews cleared diesel fuel spilled by the truck off the road.
