Trucker misses deer but spills lard


A truck driver was uninjured when his tanker overturned on I-90 near Moses Lake, in central Washington Friday.

KPQ News Radio reports the trucker swerved to miss a deer on the highway early Friday morning. Police say he lost control of the truck, which tipped over on the media.

Some 50 gallons of the lard the truck was carrying spilled, but was cleaned up by the state’s Department of Ecology.

Traffic was tied up for much of the morning.
