Kennewick trucker rolls rig, spilling fuel

GRANT COUNTY, Wash. -- A Kennewick trucker wrecked outside of Moses Lake, spilling ethanol and closing the roadway Tuesday.

Troopers say Darryl Roy was northbound on State Route 17, about eight miles outside of Moses Lake. Officers say Roy lost control, veered into oncoming traffic and hit the guardrail, rolling his rig.

The wheels blocked both lanes and SR-17 was closed between mile post 42 and 44 from 4am until 4pm Tuesday.

The EPA handled the 1,000 gallons of ethanol that leaked.
