Tanker Crash Spills Pig Feed On Delaware County Road
A crash involving a tanker carrying feed for farm animals shut down part of a Delaware road on Monday.
It happened on state Route 42 right in front of the Whitesands Campground.
The Delaware County Emergency Management Agency, the Ohio State Highway Patrol and several local fire departments responded to the scene around 9:30 a.m.
The county EMA said that the tanker was carrying 5,800 gallons of liquid hog feed.
Crews were concerned that the feed spilled out of the tanker and was seeping into the creek which flows into the Olentangy River.
EMA crews put booms into the water to try to stop the material from getting into the main waterway.
Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. Kevin Knapp said the tanker was traveling southbound, and the driver was going too fast when he slid off the right side of the road.
The driver was not injured, Knapp said.
He said weather wasn’t a factor in the crash, and the driver will be cited for failure to control.
The stretch of roadway between Central Avenue and Horseshoe Road was closed for several hours while crews worked to clear the scene.
