Tanker Driver Charged for Reckless Driving

The driver of a tanker truck that flipped over and caught fire on the Capital Beltway has been charged with reckless driving.

The accident shut down the Inner Loop at the height of Wednesday morning’s commute.

George Dawson, 29, of Baltimore, Maryland, veered off the Inner Loop near Van Dorn Street and hit a wrecker that was actually helping another broken down tractor trailer, according to Virginia State Police. Dawson’s truck then overturned just before 7 a.m.

A lack of sleep is believed to have contributed to the accident. Dawson, who was hauling dry cement in a truck registered to North American Bolt Transfer Co., had been on the road for about two hours.
