MANVILLE, Wyoming — A semitrailer rollover accident north of Manville spilled 25 tons of hot oil and injured the driver and a passenger.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol reports that the 1994 Kenworth rolled over on Wyoming Highway 270, about 5 miles north of Manville, in Niobrara County, shortly before 7 a.m. Tuesday.
