Tractor-trailer flips on icy Route 50

Posted: Updated:
PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md - A tractor trailer hauling tomatoes from Florida was just one of the many victims of the icy roads across the D.C. region Monday.  Police say the 18-wheeler flipped on its side along Route 50 outside the Beltway, likely as a result of the icy conditions.

Prince George's County Fire and EMS crews say there's a good chance the truck was simply going too fast for the bad conditions.  Roads across the region are snow-covered and slick as a result of the latest round of winter weather.  

The driver of the truck was taken to a local hospital.  His condition was not immediately released.  

The crash caused three eastbound lanes of Route 50 to be blocked.
