A tractor trailer filled with tires overturned early Monday morning on the outer loop of the Beltway near Tysons Corner, causing delays for drivers.

Virginia State Police said they could not determine at this point if the accident was caused by weather-related problems. The incident occurred just before 3 a.m. near Chain Bridge Road.

At 5 a.m., only one lane on the Beltway was getting by in the area.

By 7 a.m., two lanes of the Beltway were able to pass through the area.

Police said they expect to have the area cleared to traffic within the next hour.
