HazMat Crews Clean Up Wreck Scene

by Ramonica R. Jones

A hazardous materials team is still trying to clean up the big mess left on Highway 59 Monday after a deadly wreck. Dumpsters are being used to pick up dirt contaminated by diesel fuel.  That dirt will be shipped off for disposal.  The fuel leaked from a truck that ended up in a ditch.

The crash killed 40-year-old Kevin Hanks of Lufkin.  Troopers say Hanks was headed south on 59 when his car spun out of control, crossed the median, and ended up in the northbound lane, right in front of that 18-wheeler.  The truck driver is recovering from his injuries.
