Highway Patrol Reports Semi Rollover

Posted: Updated:
A semi rolled over on Highway 83 this morning.

The accident happened about three miles south of Wilton in the north bound lane. The truck was carrying diesel fuel to an oil field when the driver, Marlon Shaffer, 56, noticed he was too close to the shoulder. He over corrected and rolled. Some of the fuel leaked out of the tanks.

"It was just diesel fuel. It's how we fuel the rigs and doesn't look like too much product was lost so luckily our hatches remained closed, and it looks like they're doing a great job of cleaning it up right now," says David Mote the driver manager for Rolfson Oil.

The Highway Patrol says Shaffer suffered minor injuries. Traffic speeds were reduced so crews could clean up the spill and remove the truck and trailer from the highway.
