Evacuation canceled after tanker crash determined not hazardous

JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities in Jefferson City canceled a City Hall evacuation after a leaking tanker truck was found to contain carbon dioxide -- not propane, as had been feared.

Jefferson County emergency management official Tim Wilder says one person was injured in the two-vehicle crash that caused the leak this morning at U.S. 11E at Highway 92.

The injured person was flown to a hospital by helicopter.
