Filed under: Daily News | Tags:, ,


The Environmental Protection Agency is checking for pollution after a tanker truck carrying thousands of gallons of fracking chemicals rolled over near Loma, spilling chemicals into a nearby creek.


The Lower Valley Fire District says about 50 gallons of chemicals used in drilling operations leaked into a nearby stream before they dammed the area, preventing it from contaminating any further. The EPA plans to evaluate the damage on Tuesday.


The driver of the truck suffered minor injuries.
