Ramp accident causes gas spill

September 18, 1992

A Baltimore Beltway exit ramp was closed last night as crews cleaned up a 3,000-gallon gasoline spill that police said was caused when a garbage truck rear-ended a gasoline tanker.

The accident occurred at 12:30 p.m. yesterday when the truck struck the back of the tanker as it drove onto the ramp at Quarantine Road in the city, near the Anne Arundel County line, police said.

No one was injured in the accident. The drivers' names were not available.

The Department of the Environment was called to the scene to clean up the gasoline that seeped into the soil. Officials said last night that it is doubtful any of the fuel trickled into nearby Curtis Bay.

Police said they expect the ramp to be reopened today.
