Truck Accident in Andover Spills Watermelons and Fuel, Also Causing Injuries
A 2002 Kenworth tractor-trailer tipped over causing watermelons and fuel to spill on to the road and sending one person to the hospital with injuries, early Saturday evening, April 28, 2018. The accident occurred near the ramp leading to Interstate 93 South on Interstate 495.
The interstate had to be closed for several hours Saturday evening so the watermelons and fuel spilled in the accident could be cleaned up and cleared after the truck tipped over. All lanes of traffic on the Interstate were opened to traffic around 5:40 pm.
The truck driver’s identity has not been released. The only information provided was the man is from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and he is 36-years-old. The driver was given a ticket, but it was not confirmed what charge was listed on the ticket.
A passenger was injured, but the driver was not injured. The passenger was only identified as a woman from Albuquerque, New Mexico in her mid-30’s. She was taken to Lawrence General Hospital via ambulance. Her injuries were classified as minor injuries.
The investigation in to the crash is still active and ongoing.
Truck accidents can cause a great deal of damage as the weight and size of a truck are considerably more than that of an automobile. Therefore, injuries can also be significantly greater, even causing death.
