Coal spills after highway crash


A Wednesday night crash involving a drunk driver led to 38 tons of coal getting spilled in southern Montana.

The Billings Gazette reports the driver tried passing a semi hauling two trailers on U.S. Highway 314 near Decker. The car hit the guard rail, causing the crash.

The semi driver and the three men in the car were injured and treated at the hospital in Sheridan.

Montana Department of Transportation crews along with workers from the company that owns the semi spent hours cleaning up the coal from the highway.

The drunk driver will be charged in connection to the crash.
