The wreck occurred around 2 p.m. on Tuesday when a truck jackknifed and into a jersey barrier just west of Rockville Pike.

MCFRS reported the driver side fuel tank was completely ruptured and about 75 gallons of diesel fuel was leaking toward a nearby creek. That section of the inner loop is expected to be shut down for some time.
