Tanker Crash Closes Highway 26

Early Sunday morning, a tanker carrying diesel and gasoline rolled over on Highway 26 near Zig Zag.

Crews from the Hoodland Fire District shut down all lanes of traffic on Highway 26 to start controlling the runoff of fuel.

In addition, a Hazardous Materials team from Gresham Fire arrived on scene to assist in further mitigation of the fuel runoff.

The driver of the truck was able to get out on his own, but was transported to a Portland area hospital for further evaluation of his minor injuries.

Traffic was detoured on a single lane county road causing a 45 minute delay for people returning from the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
