- The Washington Times - Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Two unrelated truck crashes, one of them fatal, snarled mid-afternoon traffic on the Beltway on Tuesday.

A Virginia State Police spokeswoman confirmed that one person died after a box truck crashed in the northbound lanes of 495 near Braddock Road. The crash happened at about 2:30 p.m. and the two lanes remained closed into the rush hour.

Just a few miles south at about the same time as the fatal crash, a tractor-trailer overturned on the westbound I-495 to I-95 south flyover ramp.

Police said the two incidents were unrelated.
