Fuel truck spills thousands gallons gas in Idaho



Published: Thu, March 17, 2011 @ 2:24 p.m.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho State Police say a tanker truck crashed on Interstate 84 in southwestern Idaho, critically injuring the driver, spilling thousands of gallons of gasoline and closing a 13-mile stretch of the westbound lanes for about nine hours.

The patrol says the semi was eastbound and negotiating a curve east of Mountain Home at about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday when the tanker went off the left shoulder of the road, down a slope into the median and overturned.

The driver, 39-year-old Danny Guntrum of Nampa, was taken by air ambulance to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise. The nursing supervisor said he was critical condition this morning.

Fire crews and hazmat teams worked to contain the estimated 3,000 gallons of gasoline that spilled.

The crash is under investigation.
