WHAT DOES a nightingale have in common with Bellona Avenue and Charles Street?Certainly not a sweet song. In this case, Nightingale is a place, as in little Nightingale Way in old Lutherville where you're likely to hear screeching brakes and horns as drivers attempt to navigate the very dangerous intersection of Charles and Bellona.Actually, there are three intersections of Bellona and Charles, but the hot spot in question is the one just north of the Beltway's Charles Street exit. At that intersection, cars traveling north and east are required to stop and yield to vehicles heading west around a tricky curve on Bellona.

IT'S BEEN NEARLY TWO years since your wheelster highlighted the woes of a tres dangerous curve on Bellona Avenue just off North Charles Street where most drivers make the steep descent into the belly of Ruxton.Here is a two-lane road that holds a pair of sharp curves that make driving a white-knuckle experience. When it rains, that experience takes on religious proportions as vehicles begin to slip and slide everywhere.In early 1997, Intrepid interviewed Kate Chittenden, a neighbor of this danger zone, who warned the curve is a magnet for accidents -- and State Highway Administration statistics showing 22 reported wrecks there since 1995 back her up.Recently, though, fate caught up with Kate.

THERE'S A stakeout going on along the Bellona Avenue ramp of Interstate 695.State Tfc. Bryan Sporrer, a 13-year veteran, has aimed his radar gun at the top of the ramp to catch eager lead-footers entering the Beltway. And he's nabbing them left and right."I've had them come over that hill almost airborne," Sporrer said. "I'm clocking them at up to 62 mph."Problem is, drivers turning off Charles Street onto the ramp have no idea about the posted speed limit -- the only signs listing the 30 mph limit are around the bend on Bellona toward York Road.

THE COMPLEX corner of Bellona Avenue and North Charles Street is a holy place.This is where cynical drivers instantly get religion upon safe passage through what is generally known around Lutherville as the intersection from hell.Last week, a midsize car lay on its hood after a horrid rush-hour accident at the intersection that also gives access to Nightingale Way. Baltimore County police, reacting to the backup of nearly 100 cars in all directions, closed the ramp leading from Bellona to the outer loop of Interstate 695, causing even greater tension.

Robert Levine is a jeweler by trade. His dream home on Baltimore's northern line reflects an environment that, in his words, "was treated as though it was a piece of fine jewelry." The pink brick, chateau-style house rests at the center of a semi-circular driveway, its periphery emblazoned with lush azalea bushes, in contrast to spiral topiary at the double-door entrance with its wrought-iron outer doors. Visitors are often greeted at the marble-floored entrance hall by the deep resonance of a large brass Indian gong that stands next to a 19th-century teak Buddha from Burma.

Hoping to streamline the flow of nearly 18,000 vehicles that pass through a choked Lutherville intersection daily, State Highway Administration engineers say they will install the Towson area's second roundabout in the spring.The loop -- to be a miniature version of the new landmark at Allegheny Avenue and York, Dulaney Valley and Joppa roads -- will be built at North Charles Street and Bellona Avenue, just north of the bridge that spans Interstate 695 on Charles.SHA officials hope it will end constant gridlock at the intersection, which has been the site of 10 accidents -- some nearly fatal -- since 1993.
