Tanker 9 12

HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (9/12/18) — A gas truck overturned in a ditch this afternoon near Charleston in Hopkins County that disrupted traffic along Kentucky 109.

The Max Fuel tanker was carrying approximately 100 gallons of gasoline and 60 gallons of diesel fuel. The driver told emergency responders he took the ditch to avoid a collision with another truck turning into the Charleston convenience center.

The road was closed for about an hour as emergency responders cleared the wreckage earlier.

There were no reported injuries related to the incident. No gas was spilled.
