VANCOUVER – No one was hurt when a tanker carrying jet fuel crash near the Columbia River Saturday morning.

The B-Train tanker overturned between Radium and Golden on Highway 95, about 45 kilometres from Bugaboo Lodge.

The hatches of the tanker were leaking jet fuel before they could be fixed.

The Ministry of Environment says none of the fuel got into the waterways.

There is no word on how the tanker rolled, or which company the truck was working for.
