Clean up of a crude oil spill on Dry Hollow Road south of Silt continued Tuesday as crews scooped up contaminated top soil and took samples to determine what toxic chemicals might be present.The spill occurred six miles up Dry Hollow Road around noon Monday when a truck owned by Basin Western of Roosevelt, Utah, ran off the right side of the road then over corrected and overturned, said Matt Drymon of Colorado State Patrol Hazardous Materials.According to Basin Western president Lloyd Dean, the driver of the truck, who is from Grand Junction, was transported to Grand Valley Medical Center in Rifle for observation and released.Clean up is expected to continue through Thursday and possibly Friday, Dean said.

One hundred miles. Twelve mountain passes. Deep snow, raging rivers, and up to 48 hours on the trail. Of the 125 men and women at the starting line of the Hardrock 100-Mile Endurance Run, only 71 made it to the finish line in Silverton.Among those who can add a Hardrock finish to their list of accomplishments this year are three Roaring Fork Valley residents Garett Graubins and Devin Gardiner, both of Carbondale, and Aron Ralston of Aspen.Graubins, 32, finished in 31 hours, 51 minutes, coming in sixth an impressive result for someone unsure that he would race at all. Graubins was put on the Hardrocks lengthy wait list and trained rigorously for months, without knowing if he would ever set foot on the course. One day before the race he was accepted the final person taken from the wait list.
