Fort Collins, Colo. (AP) - For the second time in nine days, a tanker truck has crashed and spilled asphalt into the Cache La Poudre River in Northern Colorado.
The Larimer County Sheriff's Department says the tanker crashed Thursday on Colorado 14 northwest of Fort Collins, about four miles downstream from the earlier incident.
Sheriff's Spokeswoman Eloise Campanella says the driver in Thursday's crash doesn't appear to be seriously hurt. Authorities haven't determined how much asphalt spilled.
Last week, a truck driver suffered minor injuries and his tanker spilled about 5,000 gallons of asphalt into the river.
The driver was cited for careless driving.
