ILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — An eastern Montana trucking company and its owner were convicted of more than a dozen federal charges filed after a 2012 explosion destroyed an oil processing plant.

The Billings Gazette reports Woody's Trucking and Donald Wood Jr. were found guilty Tuesday of conspiracy, fraud, transporting hazardous materials without proper documentation and obstructing an investigation. Sentencing is set for October.
