Overturned Truck in North Carolina

Crews worked to remove diesel fuel from the tank of the over-turned truck


The Tryonota Fire Department was assisted by the Special Operations Team from the Gastonia Fire Department in removing diesel fuel from the saddle tanks of an over-turned tractor-trailer.

The truck was carrying treated liquid fertilizer from a waste treatment plant.

According to the SHP, the load shifted in a curve causing it to roll over.

The trailer was punctured by a large stump causing some leakage of the product. The product was off-loaded onto another tanker.
