Crude spills after semi rollover
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.
