Crude spills af­ter semi rollover

Calgary Herald - - CITY + REGION -

A semi-truck rollover north of Ed­mon­ton re­sulted in a spill of about 100 litres of crude oil, RCMP said. The sin­gleve­hi­cle col­li­sion hap­pened in the early morn­ing hours Wed­nes­day. Boyle RCMP said a semi-truck haul­ing crude oil lost con­trol and rolled over on High­way 63 about two kilo­me­tres east of Grass­land. The semi, which was trav­el­ling west­bound, hit the north ditch and leaked about 100 litres of crude oil, a news re­lease said. The 46-year-old man driv­ing the truck was taken to an area hospi­tal with “un­de­ter­mined in­juries,” RCMP said. Fire crews from Grass­land worked to con­trol the leak. RCMP said HAZMAT crews also re­sponded and that traf­fic at the scene was “min­i­mally dis­rupted.” Grass­land is about 180 km north of Ed­mon­ton.
