(KSL News) -- A four-thousand gallon capacity propane tanker slipped off a road today south of the Salt Lake airport and got stuck in a snow drift.

Dennis McKone, SLC Fire Dept.: "They tried to get it out at the time and after a while they wrenched it up quite a ways, and then it slipped over into the ravine here."

Since some railroad tracks were not far away, authorities called in a train. They braced the truck by tying it to the locomotive and then pulled it out of the ravine.
