Tanker Spills Hot Oil

Posted: Updated:
LOVELL, WY -

A tractor tanker tips over near Lovell, spilling nearly 2,500 gallons of hot oil.

The driver, Bruce Siggard, was driving a tractor and tanker trailer combination that pulled a pup trailer on Highway 310. The rig went off of the road, causing the first trailer and tanker to roll.

Wyoming Highway Patrol troopers say it will take several days to clean up. The spill isn't closing the roads, but law enforcement recommend driving carefully near the scene. Troopers say Siggard drove too fast for road conditions.
