Posted on March 24, 2021

A fuel tanker involved in a roll-over crash in Stayton causes evacuation of nearby residents Tuesday afternoon. It happened around 12:20pm in the 9500 block of Golf Club Road SE near Stayton. When crews arrived, they found the tanker overturned on the side of the road leaking fuel. The driver was not injured. A hazardous materials team responded to help contain the spill. 12 nearby residents were evacuated to temporary shelter at the Stayton Community Center. Deputies believe driver fatigue may have played a role in the crash.  No charging decision has been made at this time. Golf Club Road will continue to remain closed to traffic until hazardous material cleanup crews are able to cleanup and repair the road. There is no current estimate for when the roadway will reopened to vehicle traffic.
