May 03, 2010

Westbound Interstate 68 in Garrett County was closed as of 4 p.m. at mile marker 22 near Grantsville, Md., as emergency crews and State Highway Administration workers detoured traffic after a crash involving a tanker.

The tanker was not leaking, though there was some minor spillage of diesel from the truck's saddle tanks. Westbound I-68 was expected to remain closed for several hours.

The State Highway Administration was detouring traffic off westbound I-68 at exit 22 (U.S. 219 North) to a left onto U.S. 40 Alternate to a left onto Md. 495 and back to I-68.

Maryland State Police, Maryland Department of the Environment, local fire departments and SHA crews were on site to detour traffic and upright the tanker.
