2 injured when garbage and fuel trucks crash, leading to 750-gallon spill on Route 3 in Millersville, Maryland
The tractor-trailer was carrying about 8,000 gallons of diesel fuel southbound on Route 3 at 6:20 a.m. when it got into an accident with a garbage truck just north of Route 175, said county Fire Department spokesman Capt. Russ Davies.
The fuel truck went off the road and down a ravine of about 50 feet, where it came to rest on its side, Davies said. It began leaking fuel at a rate of 20 gallons per minute, he said.
