Ethanol Tanker Rolls On Interstate 80 In Bureau County

Posted by wlpo on February 28, 2012

A reminder if you’re taking Interstate 80 west through Bureau County, Hazmat crews were standing by for a tanker truck that was leaking ethanol.  The truck overturned just east of the Route 40 exit late Tuesday morning.

Police say the ethanol in the damaged tanker was being pumped into another tanker so they could clear the crash.

The person driving the truck was injured.  Police haven’t yet given out a name or the name of the trucking company.
