ECTOR COUNTY - Quell Petroleum is being slapped with an environmental lawsuit by Ector County.

That's after the County claims one of their vehicles was repeatedly caught leaking oil by the same driver.

The lawsuit says one of those leaks caused a motorcycle wreck on Loop 250 in Midland.

The truck normally transports oil and oil filters to and from lube shops.

Ector County is asking for the vehicle to be fully repaired or to be removed from service along with court costs, lawyer fees and civil penalties.
