Fatal truck collision, fire shuts down traffic on Wilson Bridge

A truck fire stopped traffic on the Woodrow Wilson Bridge late Wednesday morning. One person from the crash is dead. Three workers who were under the bridge had to be rescued. A preliminary investigation indicates a tractor-trailer lost control and struck highway construction vehicles on the bridge. Outer Loop traffic in this area of the Capital Beltway was diverted to Van Dorn Street. Stick with the American Legion Bridge through Montgomery County if you’re traveling through the region on Interstate 495.
