Cleanup Underway After Diesel Spills Into River
Something else has spilled into the river. West Virginia environmental regulators say a tractor-trailer crash on Interstate 77 last weekend caused diesel fuel to drain into the Kanawha River. The Department of Environmental Protection says 30 to 50 gallons of diesel fuel spilled onto Interstate 77 and into a storm drain. The truck driver was killed in the crash Saturday near an exit leading to West Virginia's Capitol. The sheen was spotted on the river Monday, and an environmental group has been hired to help with cleanup and containment.
