April 19, 2004

An Eastern Petroleum tanker overturned on a steep curve in Gambrills yesterday morning, spilling about 1,000 gallons of heating oil, according to Anne Arundel County officials.

The tanker driver told investigators that the truck's brakes malfunctioned and that he was unable to negotiate the tight curve on Dicus Mill Road, said Anne Arundel police Sgt. William Collier.

The truck overturned about 8:30 a.m., spilling fuel on the bank and down the hill, Collier said.
