Gas Leak on Along U.S. Highway 287

Saturday afternoon, Hazmat crews were called to U.S. State Highway 287 for a gas leak.

The driver of an 18-wheeler was traveling northbound on Highway 287, when he jackknifed the vehicle and drove into the median between the north bound and south bound lanes.

The 18-wheeler crashed into the concrete barricade on the south bound side, puncturing the vehicle's gas tank, sending about 70 gallons of diesel fuel into the grassy median area.
