Last Saturday’s spot of winter weather led to a horrific crash on I-95 in which a Carroll Fuel tanker slipped over the edge of I-95 near Caton Avenue, killing the driver. Our readers were most interested this week in reading about investigators’ search for information on what led to the tragic accident.

If you’ve ever gone on a family road trip that involved a traffic slog up or down I-95, you know the Maryland House I’m talking about. As the Baltimore Sun notes, it’s one of the most frequented travel plazas in the country, and as such often featured long lines, stressed employees, and a generally hectic atmosphere. But that’s all in the past (I hope). Roadtrippers take note: the Maryland House has just undergone a $30 million makeover. And it sounds FANCY.
