Trash Truck Overturns, Dumps Mess Onto Beltway

Talk about a messy commute.

A tractor-trailer overturned on the outer loop of I-495 in Maryland during the Wednesday morning commute, spilling the trash it was carrying onto a nearby car.

Traffic was still able to get by the accident in Greenbelt, Maryland, but police closed the ramp from I-295 onto the interstate while they worked to clear the scene.

There's no word on any injuries at this time, but the driver of the car the trash spilled onto could be seen getting out of his vehicle.
