An oil tanker that collided with a freighter in the Baltic Sea spilled about 550,000 gallons of oil, authorities said Thursday, and small slicks had reached the shores of Denmark. The collision late Wednesday ripped a wide gash in the side of the double-hulled tanker, which was carrying nearly 9.7 million gallons of oil, but the leak was stemmed in time to keep most of it inside.

Nearly half of the oil that spilled into the Baltic Sea last week and soiled Danish beaches has been cleaned up, officials said Sunday. The spill was caused when a freighter rammed an oil tanker Wednesday off southeastern Denmark. About 764,000 gallons of the tanker's total cargo of 9.7 million gallons poured into the sea. Cleanup crews have been aided by good weather along the Danish coast, said Joergen Holst Hansen, a representative of the country's Emergency Management Agency.
