      Beltway Outer Loop crash spills fuel, briefly closes roadway

      An accident involving two tractor trailers closed a portion of the Outer Loop of the Beltway near Alexandria Friday afternoon.

      All lanes of the Outer Loop reopened between Telegraph Road and Route 1 at about 1:20. That stretch that was closed for a period of time while hazmat crews cleaned up about 60 gallons of fuel that spilled onto the highway.

      There were no injuries, authorities say.

      For a time, delays on the highway extended all the way past the Van Dorn Street exit and close to the I-395/I-95 interchange.
