A loaded log truck overturned in Halifax County Wednesday around 1:10 p.m. at the 7000 block of Mt. Laurel Road, spilling logs and some 50 gallons of diesel fuel at the scene of the accident.

The driver of the truck, Clarence Smith, 50, of Penhook was not injured, according to Emergency Services Coordinator Kirby Saunders.

Most of the spilled diesel fuel was collected in the ditch line near the road, athough some was smeared over the roadway.

Saunders said an environmental contractor has been called in to remove the fluid, but will be unable to visit the scene until Thursday morning.

The accident is under investigation by Virginia State Trooper A. D. Dishmon, who was unavailable yesterday for comment. WSET-TV reported yesterday that Smith has been charged with driving under the influence.

No other vehicles were involved in the mishap.
