U.S. 30 Reopens After Fuel Leak Crash

(La Porte County, IN) - Motorists are traveling U.S. 30 again here in La Porte County.  According to La Porte County Police, one lane in each direction reopened several hours after a collision between two semi- trucks.


About 7,000 gallons of the 9,100 gallons of fuel inside a ruptured tanker leaked out when the

tanker was rear ended by a tractor trailer at a railroad crossing near Thompson St., authorities said.  La Porte County Haz-Mat Director Jeff Hamilton said wells in the areas will be tested over

the next several days to determine if any of the fuel leached into the groundwater.


Police reported two minor injuries from the crash which occurred about 7:30 a.m.
