On Tuesday Sublette County emergency personnel responded to an overturned tanker trailer two miles east of Sand Draw on State Highway 351. The upturned trailer spilled a small amount of condensate on the roadside. Condensate is a petroleum liquid similar to diesel fuel. Authorities said the double-tanker-trailer truck lost control of its second trailer – the pup trailer-which slid off the road and overturned. The rest of the rig remained upright. There were no injuries. Emergency Services’ Robert Hansen said the driver was lucky: “Usually when we have one like this both the tractor and the trailer tip over.”
