Foster rig rolled on its side by the Route 202 exit.The Department of Environmental Protection and Orono Fire Department’s Haz Mat team were called in to deal with what we’re told is a minor fuel spill.Crews quickly had the leak under control, but transferring the fuel from the crippled tanker to another one is a lengthy process.”A number of different holes are going to have to be drilled into each cell, then have that product removed into another tanker,” said Vance Tripp, assistant chief with the Bangor Fire Department.The driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.The ramps to Route 202 from I-395 were closed for the clean-up.
