Four people were injured and the Baltimore Beltway was shut down for about two hours last night after dogs running through westbound traffic near Dulaney Valley Road in Towson triggered a series of collisions that left a tractor-trailer overturned in the eastbound lanes. Two dogs were seen running between cars and trucks in the Beltway's westbound lanes about 9:20 p.m., said Baltimore County Fire Department Capt. Glenn Blackwell. As drivers swerved and slowed to avoid hitting the animals, the tractor-trailer hauling wood products slammed into the back of a Ford Taurus and a Toyota RAV4 sport utility vehicle.

The news that Toyota surpassed GM the other day to become the world's largest auto manufacturer will surprise exactly no one who's bought an American clunker in the past 25 years, a huge segment of the population that, unfortunately, includes me. Oh, I could tell you horror stories about the transmission that locked up on my old Chevy Camaro.
