Traffic was completely stopped briefly and serious delays continue on the Inner Loop of the Beltway in Prince George’s County, Maryland, after a tractor trailer crashed and covered the roadway in debris.

Around 8:30 a.m., the truck crashed into a wooded area in Temple Hills, spilling a mix of bricks, wood and mulch across the Beltway just after Md. 5/Branch Avenue. Initially, all lanes were blocked, but the debris was cleared and lanes were reopened around 11 a.m.
