WHEATLAND -- A tanker truck accident and crude oil spill has closed Interstate 25 north of Wheatland. Wyoming Highway Patrol spokesman Stephen Townsend said the accident happened shortly after 3 a.m. Tuesday. The tanker truck carrying 8,400 gallons of crude oil spilled most of its contents on the highway when it crashed, ending up on its side, Townsend's report stated. The main north-south route through the state remained closed in both directions for at least five hours as crews cleaned up the oil.
