Fuel Tanker Accident in Charles County

By Alpert Schreyer on April 10, 2013

Courtesy of, a fuel tanker was hit from the rear in Waldorf on Maryland Route 301, closing the highway for two and a half hours Thursday, March 28th, 2013 in the evening.  A spokesperson for the Maryland State Police told reporters that Trooper Kenge responded to the two-vehicle collision involving a fuel tanker and a passenger car at 6:27 p.m. on Maryland 301 at the Vernon Road intersection.

The passenger car slammed into the back of the fuel tanker and wedged itself underneath the tanker.  Trooper Kenge contacted the Maryland Department of the Environment, and their Hazmat (hazardous materials) Unit responded to the scene of the accident.  It was determined that the tanker was not damaged enough to have caused a leakage and that no further damage would be caused to the tanker if the car was removed from underneath.

Altra Towing was able to remove the car from under the tanker.  The fuel tanker was then taken to a nearby vacant parking lot.  The two back tires were changed.  The Maryland State Police Commercial Motor Vehicle Division then performed an inspection of the truck and determined that it was safe to drive.

The driver of the passenger car who received minor injuries was taken by ambulance to Civista Hospital in La Plata, while the fuel tanker driver was uninjured.  The southbound and northbound lanes of Maryland Route 301 remained closed for more than two hours.
