Diesel fuel spill stops I-95 traffic

Southbound traffic on Interstate 95 near Aberdeen came to a standstill for two hours Wednesday as firefighters, police and a hazardous material team contained a spill of 75 to 100 gallons of diesel fuel.

A tractor-trailer changing lanes struck a second tractor-trailer merging from the shoulder into the slow lane just north of Route 22 about 6:30 p.m., state police said.

The impact ruptured a tank on the truck driven by Jerome McKeiver Jr., 52, of Ocean City, N.J. He was charged with failing to stay in his lane, police said.

No one was injured.
