LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — The Outer Loop of the Capital Beltway was closed for hours between Colesville Road and Georgia Avenue after a tractor-trailer side swiped a police cruiser and another car involved in a traffic stop around 2 a.m. Monday.

The Maryland State Police cruiser and the stopped car were on the shoulder of I-495 when the tractor-trailer struck both vehicles.

The truck then jack-knifed and began leaking a large amount of fuel on the roadway. Hazmat officials spent hours cleaning up the spilled fuel.

Police say nobody was seriously injured in the crash.
