LANDOVER, Md. (WUSA9) -- Eastbound Route 50 in Landover was shut down for almost twelve hours on Sunday after a tanker truck crash, fire officials said.

The tanker ran off the road and into a ditch near Route 202 around 5:50 a.m. fire officials said. The driver was taken to a trauma center, officials said.

Hazmat officials spent hours cleaning up 22 hundred gallons of fuel that spilled onto the road during the incident. The road reopened just after 5 p.m.
