UPDATE: All lanes open as of 2:12 p.m.
The Dulles Greenway’s westbound lanes from Claiborne Parkway remained closed, and are not expected to reopen until at least 2 p.m. as the Virginia State Police await the removal of 7,000 gallons of diesel fuel from an overturned tanker truck along the Greenway. Eastbound lanes are open.
Once the fuel has been transferred to another truck, emergency workers will remove the overturned truck.
The Virginia State Police continue to investigate the cause of an accident in which a tanker truck overturned on the Dulles Greenway.
The VSP received a call to the Greenway and Exit 5/Claiborne Parkway at 5:27 a.m. because an overturned tanker truck had caught fire. The cleanup area was between the two Sycolin Road overpasses.
The male driver of the truck was flown to Inova Fairfax Hospital for treatment of serious, but non-life-threatening injuries, according to a report from the state police.
