CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Police say the driver of a pickup truck is facing charges after he crashed through a chain fence and hit a gas lane at the Arrow Energy plant at 700 Leonards Lane in Cambridge late Wednesday night.
Lt. Mark Lewis of the Cambridge Police Department said the crash, which happened at around 11 p.m., caused a nearly 4,000-gallon gas leak. The leak resulted in a strong odor of gasoline in the surrounding area. It took several hours for the gasoline to be cleaned up by Hazmat crews, the Maryland Department of Environment and the EPA.
Lewis said said the driver of the pickup, 27-year-old Justin Anthony Noble of Cambridge, was ejected from the pickup after the crash. His 20-month-old daughter was a passenger, Lewis said.
According to Lewis, Nobile got back into the vehicle and fled the scene. However, Lewis said Noble left evidence at the scene that allowed police to be able to track him down. Noble told investigators where he left the vehicle, according to Lewis.
Noble was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury where he was treated for his injuries and released. Noble's daughter was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore where she was treated and released.
Lewis said Noble is in police custody and will be facing charges in connection with the crash.
