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.
