Allegany County 911 reports that a tractor-trailer narrowly missed hitting the Mullaney Building at 13700 McMullen Highway. No one was injured in the 9:36 a.m. incident, but a fuel tank was leaking, which prompted the response of the Allegany County Hazardous Incident Response Team. Benjamin Pyles, 30, of Lost City, W.Va., was driving the 1996 Freightliner south when the truck drifted off the roadway and struck a tree, according to Maryland State Police. Pyles refused medical treatment and received a citation for negligent driving.
