SILVERTON, Colo. A truck hauling waste from a Colorado mine the source of a 2015 spill that polluted rivers in three states crashed into a creek on Monday, spilling at least some of its load into the water, authorities said.

The driver was not seriously injured, but about 9 cubic yards of sludge spilled into the water, officials said.

The sludge is a byproduct of a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency wastewater treatment plant cleaning up water draining from the inactive Gold King mine near Silverton in southwestern Colorado.
