North tip of Mass Ave closed

It's a scenario that triggers uncomfortable associations this summer: Fuel is spilling into a creek in a pristine, scenic area near the Potomac, after a truck carrying asphalt plummeted through a guardrail near where Massachusetts Avenue terminates in Glen Echo.

The area near the intersection of Massachusetts Ave. and Goldsboro Drive is cordoned off, but the impact to drivers on southern Mass. Ave, closer to the city, should be minimal, said Montgomery County Police Corporal Dan Friz. The driver was not injured, he added, but diesel fuel was leaking.

A Montgomery County hazmat team is managing the situation.

While we could blame this on our addiction to asphalt, we would like to know what greedy corporation is responsible for this. We need to know whose ass to kick.
