Overturned Gasoline Truck

Four families were evacuated due to sewer-line gas after a Texaco gasoline truck overturned on the outskirts of town.

The gas flooded sewer lines, streets and ditches between 48th Street and Correctionlville Road.

It took about two hours for the gas to flush away and allow cars back on to these streets, in the meantime drivers were forced to use alternate routes.

Fire Chief Charles Hochandel says: “The Fireman followed catastrophe and hazmat procedures set up beforehand for just such an occurrence.”
