A large gas spill shut down an intersection in Spokane Valley during the Thursday morning commute. The spill happened near the North Sullivan Rd. and East Indiana Avenue intersection at about 7 a.m. The northbound lanes and one southbound lane of Sullivan Road were reopened at about 12:15 p.m. The Spokane County Sheriff's Office reported that one truck was unable to stop and rear-ended the a tanker truck, which had stopped for traffic. The collision caused one of the tanker truck’s trailers to leak premium unleaded fuel on the road. The sheriff's office said about 500 gallons of fuel were spilled. Original reports said between 800-1,500 gallons were spilled. Fire officials spread Floor-Dry on the pavement, which is a powder that absorbs the gas.
