The week did not end well for motorists who drive on Highway 38.
It was reported that a fuel tanker overturned and spilled some of its 10,000-gallon load along the road - contaminating local waterways in the process. The Environmental Protection Agency is investigating to determine how serious the threat was to the area's water supply.
It is possible that a three-mile portion of the highway could be closed for the next several weeks until the clean-up and investigation is complete - Highway 38 is a popular road leading to Big Bear Lake.
A California Highway Patrol spokesman stated that the driver was taken to a local hospital and is in stable condition. According to reports, the driver lost control of his vehicle, causing it to flip.
