Tractor-Trailer Overturns, Closes 313 For Hours

Posted:

GREENSBORO, Md. -  A tractor-trailer overturns, causing parts of Route 313 to close for hours Monday afternoon.

It happened at 11:55 a.m. on Monday along Greensboro Road just south of Union Road.

Maryland State Police say 33-year-old Dwayne Oswald, of Pennsylvania, was driving a Peterbilt 2002 tractor-trailer when it struck three power poles and overturned. Police say Oswald denied medical attention and suffered no life threatening injuries.

Police say one of the poles hit was destroyed while the other two had minor damage. As result of the damage to the pole and down wires, Greensboro Road was closed until the power company gave the all clear.

Police say the tractor-trailer was loaded with farm equipment. The Maryland Department of Environment responded to the scene to help drain diesel fuel from the tractor and hydraulic fluid from the farm equipment.

At 5:30 p.m., northbound lanes of Greensboro Road re-opened, while the southbound lanes were diverted at Union Road.

At 7:30 p.m., all lanes re-opened for travel.

Oswald was charged with negligent driving.
