A tanker truck carrying non-hazardous resin overturned onto a median on eastbound Route 50 near Bowie Monday evening, state police confirmed.
The driver was extricated and taken to an area hospital by Prince George's County emergency medical workers, Maryland State Police Sgt. Jon Hill said. The extent of the driver's injuries was unclear.
All eastbound lanes and the westbound high-occupancy vehicle lane were expected to be closed for hours until another truck could pick up the cargo and the overturned tanker could be righted.
Police were routing traffic into the eastbound shoulder, Hill said, and they hope to reopen the road as soon as possible.
