Truck With Propane Tank Overturns After Accident in Greenbelt

Three adults were transported to local hospitals following the accident.

A truck containing a small propane tank overturned on Friday after an accident with a maroon van on Kenilworth Avenue (MD 201) near Crescent Road, according to Greenbelt police.

Hazardous materials crews were called to the scene as a precaution, because of the propane tank in the overturned vehicle, Officer Kelly Lawson, spokesperson for the Greenbelt Police, said. There were not any leaks, however, according to Lawson.

Three adults were transported to local hospitals by ambulance following the accident, which occurred at about 1:36 p.m., Lawson said.

The truck, which bore graphics depicting a Polish sausage, snacks, ice cream and cold drinks, rolled on it's side after the accident and was towed from the accident scene.

Lawson said the cause of the accident is still under investigation.

I consider myself quite fortunate as my wife and I were right there no more than 3 to 5 minutes before this tragedy occurred. My prayers go out for everyone involved.

AMEN, I pray that everone is okay. I had passed this accident and it looked horrific not knowing the status of the passengers. Thank God everyone survived. It looked like they were cutting someone out of the side because the truck was on its side.
