SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - An oil tanker crashed near Myton, spilling several thousand gallons of crude oil into a dry river bed.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1de0iia ) that a truck driver was on Wells Draw Road, a country road about 8.5 miles south of State Route 40, Saturday night when he cut a turn incorrectly and the truck rolled.

The driver suffered head and back injuries and was taken to Uintah Basin Medical Center in Roosevelt before a helicopter moved him to Intermountain in Murray.

The crash spilled most of the double tanker’s 286 barrels of crude oil.
