Jack Frost called his wife, Geri, early Tuesday afternoon with some bad news. He had locked his keys in his tanker truck, he said. But not to worry. He'd soon be rolling again, and would see her that night. It was 1:10 p.m. A little more than three hours later, Geri Frost heard that a tanker truck had fallen from an overpass onto the northbound lanes of Interstate 95 and exploded, a conflagration into which four other vehicles disappeared. Traffic was backed up for miles. She called her husband's cell phone, but it rang and rang without an answer.

Boyor D. Chew was cruising down Interstate 95 in a tanker truck filled with thousands of gallons of gasoline early yesterday when he noticed fire leaping out the back of the vehicle. He slowed, and the flames grew higher. He sped up and wind knocked them down. What he couldn't do was pull to the side. Other drivers, he said, "must have seen the fire on the wheel, but they still wouldn't let me over." Finally, in a move that state transportation officials credit with saving lives on one of the busiest travel days of the year, Chew eased the truck to the side of the highway, just before the southbound lanes split at the Capital Beltway.

A tanker truck containing more than 3,000 gallons of gasoline was recovered in Philadelphia this afternoon, after it was stolen from Kent County earlier this week. Kent County Sheriff John Price said the tanker was found just before 4:30 p.m. by Philadelphia police. It went missing sometime Monday evening or Tuesday morning, officers said. Price said he did not immediately know whether the truck had been drained of the fuel. No suspect has been arrested. The 10-wheel truck was stolen from Alger Oil Inc., a company that services the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Harford County.

QUEENSTOWN - One man was killed and another was critically injured in an early-morning accident that sent a dense cloud of nitrogen vapor spewing from an overturned tanker truck and forced the closure of a 4-mile stretch of U.S. 50 for nearly 10 hours yesterday. State police and a hazardous materials response team from the Maryland Department of the Environment diverted traffic as 6,000 gallons of liquid nitrogen leaked from the tanker near the Chesapeake Outlet Center. Killed in the 5:50 a.m. crash was Archie Riley, 75, of Stevensville, the driver of a 1989 Chevrolet Beretta that collided with the tanker truck driven by Anthony I. Conway, 45, of Baltimore.

One person died and three others, including a state highway worker, were injured yesterday after a five-vehicle crash that forced the closure of the outer loop of the Beltway in Arbutus, authorities said. An elderly man was killed after his Toyota Camry was caught up in the chain-reaction crash, which ended with a sport utility vehicle turned on its side and a tanker truck sitting atop a trailer towed by a State Highway Administration truck. "I've never seen anything as gruesome as that," said Curt James, a 45-year-old employee of a lawn-treatment company who said he was working near the highway when he saw the crash.
