Tanker Truck Spills Fuel Following Rollover Crash in Sioux Falls [PHOTOS]
SIOUX FALLS – On Monday at about 3:00 p.m. a tanker truck driver was cited with careless driving after his vehicle rolled over, spilling its load.
The tanker was carrying over 10,000 gallons of fuel when the driver took a corner too sharp, which caused the trailer to go into a ditch and flip over. Fuel leaked out of 4 of the truck’s compartments.
Numerous crews, including 5 fire trucks and 2 hazmat trucks were able to contain the fuel spill. Ellis Road was closed between 12th St and Maple St for over 6 hours while crews worked to clean up the accident.
The driver was not injured in the accident and no other vehicles were involved.
