Watonga Crash Kills Beaver Man
03/17/2009

WATONGA, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Beaver

man was killed when his tractor-trailer rig collided with a tanker

in a Blaine County accident.

Troopers say 44-year-old James Alger was pronounced dead at the

scene of the 8:10 a.m. accident about eight miles west of Watonga

yesterday. It took more than seven hours to free Alger from the

wreckage.

The patrol says the collision occurred in heavy fog at the

intersection of U.S. 270 with Oklahoma 33.

Troopers say Robert Magness was driving the tanker from Oklahoma

33 onto westbound U.S. 270 when Alger's eastbound semi struck the

passing vehicle in the tank trailer.

A hazardous materials crew had to clean up a butane or

pressurized propane spill from the crash.

U.S. 270 was finally reopened about 6:10 p.m.
