Tanker spill closes Hwy 17

Highway 17 is closed as crews from the Department of Ecology work to transfer ethanol from a tanker truck that crashed in a bridge over Lind Coulee around 6 am.


No one was hurt in the crash. Ecology reports that less than 100 gallons of ethanol spilled onto the roadway and none of it reached water in a nearby canal. Highway 17 will remain closed as crews work to transfer approximately 6,0000 gallons of ethanol into a new tank and right the truck.
