Gas spill no longer hazardous

February 24, 2003

Albany - A 76 year-old woman injured when a fuel tanker slammed into her car is improving. Mary Clark, of Pelham, pulled out in front of a tanker truck as she tried to cross Highway 19 near Meigs. The vehicles slammed into each other and rolled into a deep ditch. Hundreds of gallons of gasoline spilled from the tanker driven by Roger Hatcher of Leesburg.

The EPD closed the road to spray a neutralizer on the gas. The road reopen around Monday at midnight. Clark remains at the Archbold Hospital in Thomasville. Hatcher was treated and released with minor injuries. Charges are pending.
