Trucker Duct Tapes Fuel Adding to a Leaky Situation
A Canadian fuel tank driver working for a Saskatchewan company managed to add more fuel to a leaky situation.
A truck stop employee near Livingston, Montana contacted authorities after noticing a substantial diesel fuel leak surrounding a tanker.
The trucking sleeping beauty awoke to find Park County firefighters eagerly pounding on his tractor door around 3 a.m. Fire Chief Dann Babcox noted that around 100 gallons of diesel fuel had leaked from the driver’s duct taped quick fix around a fuel line.
The stuck truck driver admitted that he might have smacked into something while zooming down Interstate 90. He states that he saw nothing upon stopping to inspect for possible damage.
