Tractor-Trailer Carrying Crushed Cars Overturns on Route 50

LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — An overturned tractor-trailer carrying crushed cars on westbound Route 50 near Sandy Point is snarling traffic for Thursday morning’s commute.

The truck was carrying as many 20 cars on its flatbed trailer when it rolled over a few miles from the Bay Bridge around 5:45 a.m.

One right lane is blocked between Bay Dale Drive and Oceanic drive because of the accident. Traffic is getting by in the two left lanes.

The driver of the truck has been taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
