Tractor-trailer crash in DC delays Friday morning commute

A tractor-trailer crash caused major morning delays Friday in downtown D.C.

The crash happened around 5 a.m. along the eastbound lanes of I-695 at South Capitol Street.

All lanes of eastbound I-695 between the 3rd Street tunnel and South Capitol Street were closed for several hours.
