I-94 crash near Casselton spills oil into median

CASSELTON, N.D. — A crash on Interstate 94 involving a semitrailer and an oil tanker sent both drivers to the hospital and spilled at least 200 gallons of oil.

The Highway Patrol says neither driver suffered critical injuries in the Thursday afternoon crash near Casselton in southeastern North Dakota. Authorities are still investigating what led to the crash.

Officials say the low-grade oil that spilled in the median was not hazardous. One lane of traffic was closed in each direction while the spill was cleaned up.
