Several toll lanes on southbound Interstate 95 prior to the Fort McHenry Tunnel in Baltimore were closed Tuesday afternoon after a tractor trailer collided with a pick-up truck at one of the toll entrances. The accident, reported to Maryland Transportation Authority officials about 5:18 p.m., forced four lanes of traffic to be closed as hazardous materials crews responded to 20 gallons of fuel reported to be spilled on the roadway, said Tamory Winfield, a MdTA spokesman. No injuries were reported, but the lanes - No. 15 through No. 18 - could remain closed for some time, Winfield said shortly after 6 p.m. First Sgt. Jonathan Green, a MdTA Police spokesman, said the accident appeared to involve the tractor trailer, the pick-up truck and one other passenger vehicle.

The August 2012 derailment of a coal train in the heart of historic Ellicott City likely began at a small break in the rail line several hundred feet from where two 19-year-old women were seated next to the tracks. The presence of the break, made public in investigative documents released by the National Transportation Safety Board on Monday, further supports a conclusion many community members have been grappling with for nearly two years - that Elizabeth Conway Nass and Rose Louese Mayr, both 19, were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
