Crashes keep state police busy Thursday, none reported to be serious

Local police were kept busy Thursday evening and into the night with several accidents, though none was serious, they said.

The first happened around 5 p.m. on Aldino Road near Mahan Road in Churchville, according to Cpl. Monk of the Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack.


A large piece of farm equipment took out a phone pole along the road, he said. Aldino Road was closed for a short period of time, he said, and BGE was called.

Harford Fire Blog reported that the wires down started a field fire.


Later Thursday, a crash was reported on Route 165 between Wheeler School Road and Whiteford Volunteer Fire Company's fire house, according to Harford Fire Blog., which said one person was trapped.

Monk at the state police barrack said no one was injured.

A couple lanes of I-95 were closed Thursday night near Route 543 while the Hazmat team responded to a tractor trailer leaking fuel from a side gas tank.

It was a "very minor spill," according to the duty officer at the Maryland State Police JFK barrack.
