A very early Tuesday morning tanker rollover causes Highway 26 north of Madras to be shut down for 12 hours. The Warm Springs Fire and Safety and Warm Springs Police were dispatched to milepost 93, which is about seven miles north of Madras, around 12:30 a.m. "One of the tanker trailers was on its side in the highway. The tractor-trailer with its attached tanker was still upright. So just the last tanker trailer basically fell. And it was due to the winter weather."  Juanita Majel with the Warm Springs Public Safety Branch says the tanker trailer was carrying about 6300 gallons of fuel. The driver says he was driving very slow, and one of his tires must have caught some dirt and turned over. No one was hurt in the crash. Hazmat crews from Prineville and ODOT worked to clean up leaked fuel and pump fuel from the wrecked tanker.  Highway 26 reopened about 12:30 this afternoon.
