850 Gallons Of Gas Spill In Idaho Tanker Crash

LOWELL, Idaho (AP) - A weekend fuel tanker crash along the Lochsa River in northern Idaho spilled about 850 gallons of gasoline, but none is believed to have reached the water.

The tanker driven by Marco Williamson of Florence, Mont., failed to negotiate a curve and crashed about 8 a.m. Saturday on U.S. Highway 12 about 29 miles east of Lowell.

Lewiston Fire Department engineer and paramedic Mike Schmidt tells the Lewiston Tribune the tanker was carrying diesel fuel and gasoline, but only the gasoline tanker was
breached.

About 2,000 gallons of diesel was recovered along with half of the estimated 1,700 gallons of gasoline.

Schmidt says crews placed about 200 feet of absorbent booming in the river as a precaution, but the spill site was about 75 feet of the water.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures. It became even more complicated when the Washington Supreme Court overturned a Thurston County judges decision after the judge initially threw out over 300,000 signatures saying the petition didn't follow election law claiming it was unreadable.
