Small fuel spill in Fairfax County
A fuel tanker truck was in a collision with another vehicle Sunday in Fairfax County, about a mile from where a tanker accident last month spilled 4,000 gallons of gasoline.
Sunday’s spill was only about one per cent as large as in the Aug. 28 incident, according to authorities.
Abouut 40 gallons of fuel spilled in Sunday’s incident at Little River Turnpike and Glenbrook Road, said Capt. Willie Bailey, a spokesman for the Fairfax County fire department.
He said the county's hazardous materials unit kept all of it from entering the sewer system.

The earlier incident occurred when a tanker overturned at Pickett Road and the turnpike, where Fairfax City and Fairfax County meet. About 3,500 gallons of fuel that spilled in that incident were reported recovered, authorities said.
