Authorities assess damage after gasoline spill

FRISCO, Colo. (AP) - Authorities are still trying to assess the damage after a tanker truck crashed on Loveland Pass, dumping at least 4,000 gallons of gasoline above Arapahoe Basin Ski Area.

Fire officials tell the Summit Daily the environmental damage could be severe.

The Solar Transportation vehicle was hauling diesel and unleaded fuel into Summit County when it tipped over and ruptured on Saturday. Officials say the pollution was 3 or 4 inches deep in places.
