I-70 reopens after crash that spilled 2K gallons of fuel

By  | 

EAGLE, Colo. (KJCT) -- Interstate 70 has reopened in Eagle County following the clean up a crash that spilled about 2,100 gallons of diesel fuel along the icy highway.

The Colorado State Patrol says a truck carrying empty beer cans lost control on I-70 around 6 a.m. Monday and ended up blocking both westbound lanes of the highway. A tanker truck then crashed into the rear of that truck, spilling cans on the road, and drove into the median, where it overturned and spilled the fuel.

No one was injured.

The State Patrol says a mix of rain and sleet falling on top of snow is believed to have contributed to the crash.
