Cleanup ongoing for 7,500-gallon oil spill near Victoria, Texas

A cleanup crew continued to scrape soil from a 7,500 gallon oil spill on state Highway 185 about four miles south of Victoria on Wednesday.

On Saturday morning, the driver of a southbound Sun Coast Resources, Inc. cargo trailer drove off the east side of the roadway and into the median, where the vehicle rolled, spilling crude oil, according to the San Antonio Department of Public Safety communications office.

The driver of the truck was treated at a hospital and released, said Steve Boyd, Sun Coast Resources senior managing director.

All of the spilled oil was contained to the storm ditch next to the road, wrote Texas Commission on Environmental Quality spokeswoman Andrea Morrow in an email. No water supplies were affected.
