BALTIMORE (AP) - Authorities say the Baltimore man who was killed when the tanker he was driving slid off an icy interstate and exploded earlier this month had the required certification to drive a fuel truck.

Lt. Kevin Ayd with the Maryland Transportation Authority Police tells WTOP-FM (https://bit.ly/2hd0u2d ) 31-year-old Clinton Lamont Worrell also had a valid medical certification.

The company Worrell worked for, Carroll Independent Fuel, said in a statement posted online that he was an outstanding employee. The company says it is working with authorities on their investigation into the Dec. 17 incident.

A nearly 70-vehicle pileup occurred nearby around the same time, killing two people and injuring about two dozen others. Police say they are investigating the crashes separately, but both occurred during particularly icy conditions.
