Flipped truck slows traffic in St. Albans

Posted: Updated:
ST. ALBANS TOWN, Vt. -

A tractor-trailer hauling fuel oil went off Interstate 89 Friday morning in St. Albans Town.

The truck reportedly went off the left side of the road while passing another tractor-trailer. It wound up on its side in the median. The crash caused some traffic delays as crews worked to secure the full tanker load of fuel.

"The truck contains approximately 9,800 gallons of number 2 fuel, so it's really not a danger. The only danger we have right now is to the environment, so we need to offload it before it gets up-righted," St. Albans Town Fire Chief Bob Cross said.

It took about four hours to pump out all of the fuel and get the truck back on its wheels and hauled away.
