(WJLA) - A garbage truck flipped over on the Outer Loop of the Capital Beltway Wednesday morning, shutting down several lanes during the morning rush.

The crash happened on the Outer Loop of I-495 near the interchange with the Baltimore-Washington Parkway.

The accident further complicated an already rough morning commute in Maryland, where a fatal accident on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway shut down all lanes in both directions.

Hazmat units have been called to assist with the cleanup of the spilled garbage, which partially covered one car.
