Greenville County (WSPA) – Crews worked to clean up a mess Friday afternoon that was created by an overturned concrete truck in Greenville County.
The truck rolled over at the intersection of North Davis Drive and White Horse Road around 2:30 p.m. According to the Berea Fire Department, it was still filled with concrete and weighed over 40,000 pounds.
The Greenville City Fire Department’s hazardous material team was requested to respond out of precaution.
“There was a small spill of some combination of fluids from the truck,” said Battalion Chief Mark Thomas, Berea Fire Department. “It was mainly water but there was also some diesel fuel, some hydraulic fluid and possibly some engine oil also.”
Crews on the scene said the driver of the truck sustained minor injuries and is expected to be okay.
A portion of White Horse Road near the intersection was blocked off while tow truck personnel worked to lift the truck.
After multiple attempts, the Berea Fire Department said the truck was eventually turned back upright. All lanes of travel were reopened on White Horse Road around 6 p.m.
South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating.
