COLLBRAN, Colo. (CBS4) – Investigators are checking for environmental impacts after a tanker truck rolled in Mesa County.

Several gallons of a substance similar to fracking fluid spilled out. It happened Monday afternoon near the town of Collbran on Buzzard Creek Road near Kimble Creek Road.

Fire crews say the truck was carrying 110 barrels of “production water,” which is very similar to fracking fluid.

About four of the barrels leaked into the ground, but none of it got into the water and nobody was hurt.
