A trucking company has settled with the state in the case of a fuel spill that killed fish in Sugar Creek nearly six years ago. A truck owned by J. McDaniel Transportation crashed on Route 136 in April of 2001, spilling gasoline that ran into Sugar Creek near McLean. The trucking company has agreed to pay $25,000 to the state for natural resource restoration and educational projects. Illinois Environmental Protection Agency Spokeswoman Maggie Carson says the spill is still being cleaned up...

The spill killed fish and aquatic life up to four miles away from the spill. The settlement will go into the state's Natural Resource Restoration Trust Fund for various projects.
