Tanker truck flips, spills fuel in Anthony

Sunday, September 15, 2013 - 9:28pm

After nearly 12 hours, crews cleared an 18 wheeler accident in Anthony, Texas.

Police said an Western Refining tanker hit a patch of dirt, lost control and flipped over on North Desert at 8:30 a.m. Sunday.

Paramedics took the 35-year-old driver to the hospital with minor injuries.

The driver was hauling gas to local truck stops and some of the gas spilled onto the roadway.

A hazmat team from El Paso cleaned up the spill and transferred it to another tanker.

Crews closed the Anthony exit on I-10 westbound and North Desert from Anthony to Vinton, but they were opened 12 hours later.
