This is odd, I was on the freeway when this happened last night and didn’t even notice it. Of course, I tend to sleep on the bus so maybe I just slept through it. Anyway, the Spokesman-Review reports that a four-vehicle crash involving two tractor trailers spilled about 50 gallons of fuel on Interstate 90 Monday evening.

No one was injured in the accident, which blocked three lanes of eastbound traffic just west of Division Street beginning at 5:11 p.m. The crash fractured a diesel fuel tank, which spread the fuel over about 100 yards.

Hazardous materials experts with the Spokane Fire Department built dikes to stop the fuel from flowing into stormwater drains.
