Tanker Crash Kills Bend Driver

A tanker carrying 11,600 gallons of gasoline crashed on an icy Highway 22 east of Detroit Friday night.

The driver, 58-year-old Ronald Scurlock, was killed in the crash. 

A fire truck from the Idanha-Detroit Fire Protection District rolled while responding to the crash due to the icy conditions. The driver of the fire truck wasn't hurt.

Several other vehicles also had minor collisions, because of the ice.

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is working to determine how much of the fuel went into the ground. A river is also nearby.

Highway 22 remained closed Sunday morning, due to damage to the road. Highway 20 is the alternate.
