Jean Nicolas crashed a tanker owned by MGM Transport as he was leaving Port Everglades on the night of March 2, sources say. The fully-loaded tanker spilled nearly 9,000 gallons of fuel in front of a storage facility near Terminal 18. The exact cause of the accident is still unclear.
After the tanker rolled over, Nicolas, who was trapped in the cabin, managed to get out by breaking the back window and crawling to safety. He did not suffer any serious injuries, but was taken to Broward Health Medical Center for treatment of some bruises and cuts.
