Shortly before 2PM Thursday, a tow operator was attempting to pick up a disabled car from the right shoulder of the offramp from the Inner Loop of the Beltway (I-495) to Rockville Pike (MD-355). While that disabled car was being loaded, a pickup truck was attempting to pass the scene.

The driver of the pickup truck lost control and crashed into the rear of the rollback tow truck and disabled car. Fortunately, nobody was seriously injured, but the driver of the striking pickup had to be extricated by members of the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad.
