Semi Fuel Spill in Martin County

Semi Fuel Spill in Martin County

MARTIN COUNTY, TX (KWES) - Gasoline spilled out onto a highway in Martin County this morning, after a semi rolled over.

State troopers say the semi tried to turn onto Highway 87, but the driver was going too fast.

The semi then rolled, causing 750 gallons of both gasoline and diesel fuel to spill out onto the road.

Allied International Emergency from Big Spring cleaned up the mess.

The report says the fuel that didn't spill was siphoned off into another tanker.

Troopers say the driver had minor injuries, but refused treatment at the scene.
