Man killed in Rockville collision
A man was killed in a two-car collision Thursday night in the Rockville area, Montgomery police said.
Two other people were taken to hospitals after the accident on West Montgomery Avenue near Hurley Avenue about 8 p.m., authorities said. One of those people was transported to a hospital with potentially life-threatening critical injuries, said Capt. Oscar Garcia, a Montgomery County fire department spokesman.
The fire department's hazmat units were called to the scene because a Rockville City vehicle was involved in the crash and caused a fuel leak of 30 to 30 gallons, Garcia said. Crews were trying to prevent the fuel from entering storm drains or nearby streams, he said.
It was not immediately clear whether icy roadways may have contributed to the collision.
