Crews clean up after gas spills from truck in northern Sask.
Cleanup crews on site near Missinipe
Gasoline has been spilled and a cleanup is underway after a fuel truck crashed in northern Saskatchewan Monday night.
It happened just before 11 p.m. on Highway 102, about nine kilometres south of the community of Missinipe.
The tanker truck was loaded with gasoline when it left the road and flipped on its side, La Ronge RCMP said.
It's not clear how much fuel spilled, but the tank that was ruptured contained 14,000 litres.
Officials said they will have to drain the rest of the tank to find out how much was lost. The spilled gas did not go into any waterways, they said.
After the leak was plugged Monday night by first responders from La Ronge, cleanup crews went to work.
The driver was injured and was taken to hospital.
The truck ended up jackknifed in a ravine, about five metres from the highway.
Police haven't said anything about what might have caused the accident.
