Semi Truck Drops Load of Carbon Dioxide

Posted: Updated:

    It was a bit of bad luck changed to better when a tanker truck dropped his load of carbon dioxide on the on ramp of hwy 395 off of Locust Rd.

An investigation is underway, but Washington State troopers tell us, the Liquid Air tank came lose from the truck due to the pin slipping from the fifth wheel hitch.  

The tank landed on the roadway without compromising the tank. And no other cars were affected.

The road was blocked for a short time while casady towing and mel's towing lifted the tank back onto another semi truck trailer.
