October 5, 2006

A driver suffered minor injuries Thursday morning when the tractor-trailer diesel tanker he was driving overturned in south Lansing.

A Lansing Police spokesman said the accident occurred around 7 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 5, about one-half block away from All About Dreams Gymnastics, 1104 Industrial Drive, located in the Lansing Business Center.

The driver told police loose gravel on the pavement caused him to lose control of the vehicle as he turned onto Industrial Terrace.

The spokesman said the driver refused transport but was treated at the scene by Leavenworth County EMS.

Two gallons of diesel fuel spilled from the tanker, according to the spokesman. Leavenworth County Fire District No. 1 department personnel used absorbent material to clean up the spill.
