Butane Spill East of New Town

Posted: Updated:

 

A Kenworth truck pulling a trailer loaded with Butane overturned east of New Town on Friday night. 

According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, the truck made a left turn from ND 23 to go north on ND 8 when the trailer disconnected from the truck and then overturned.

The crash damaged the trailer, which caused Butane to leak from the unit. The ND 8 and ND 23 intersection was shutdown by police because of the hazardous material leak. Traffic was routed around the crash and a 1 mile radius of the scene was evacuated to protect the public. The intersection was reopened when the hazardous material leak was contained and the trailer was removed from the scene.
