Gasoline Spillage Due to Texaco Truck Overturning

A Texaco gasoline truck has overturned on the outskirts of town near 48th street and Correctionville Road causing gas flooding sewer lines  for two blocks.

Cars are being rerouted through the side streets and four families have been evacuated because of the sewer line gas. The gas has also found its way onto streets and into ditches.

It will take up to two hours until gas in flushed away. Fire Chief Charles Hochandel has said, “The firemen followed catastrophe and hazmat procedures set up beforehand for just such an occurrence.”
