May 19, 2010

OGDEN, UT - A Utah truck driver has been arrested after blood tests indicated he was driving under the influence of illegal drugs when he crashed his rig carrying diesel fuel in March, according to the Salt Lake Tribune

Shane Oliver on May 13 was booked into the Weber County Jail and charged with driving under the influence, possession of drug paraphernalia and unsafe lane travel, the Utah Highway Patrol told the newspaper. 

The single-vehicle crash occurred March 17 on Interstate 15 in Roy, Utah. Oliver was not seriously injured, although the crash caused a fire. 

Court records reference a toxicology report that found methamphetamine and metabolite amphetamine in Oliver's blood. 

Oliver had been traveling to Ogden with about 5,000 gallons of diesel fuel from Golden Eagle Oil Refinery in Woods Cross.
