Homeowners in Frederick are concerned about their safety after a tanker crashed and exploded along a busy highway earlier this month. State and local leaders held a meeting Wednesday to hear the concerns of those residents. “It wasn’t good,” Frederick resident Jeff Oranczak said. “It wasn’t good at all.” Oranczak and his wife live along U.S. Route 15 in Frederick, right near where a tanker truck crashed into a tree and exploded on March 4. Firefighters said the truck was carrying flammable liquid.
