Overturned semi-truck spills milk into Clear Lake – The Ukiah Daily Journal

A semi-truck overturned on Highway 20 Sunday, spilling possibly thousands of gallons of milk into Clear Lake, the California Highway Patrol reported.

According to the CHP, a 38-year-old Fortuna man was driving a 2013 Kenworth semi-truck hauling a tank trailer carrying 6,000 gallons of milk and heading west around 12:10 p.m. Sunday when the truck overturned. The trailer then separated from the truck and rolled into the lake, where the tank ruptured and “spilled an undetermined amount of milk into the lake.”

The CHP credits “swift action by the Northshore Fire Protection District” crews with preventing “the release of any other hazardous materials into the lake.”

The driver suffered major injuries and was transported via air ambulance to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. The CHP reports that it does not suspect either drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
