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.

Twenty-two pedestrians died after being hit by cars in Baltimore County in 2013 - that's a five year high, and officials say the county is on pace to match it this year. Trying to lower those numbers, county officials Thursday launched a "Heads Up! Walk Safe" campaign, urging pedestrians to obey traffic laws and be more cognizant of their surroundings while walking and biking. Pedestrians are at fault in 80 percent of crashes, officials said. "This past year, 2013, we had more fatal pedestrian crashes in Baltimore County than in the five years prior," said County Executive Kevin Kamenetz during a news conference.
