Tractor trailer wreck spills fuel

South Boston News
Emergency personnel responded Wednesday to a report of an overturned tractor trailer on U.S 58 in Leggett’s Bottom. The cargo truck carrying paper products, operated by Werner Enterprises, spilled approximately 60 gallons of diesel fuel when it was overturned near the Dan River crossing in the eastbound lane of Philpott Road. One eastbound lane was closed during the response for approximately four hours. Numerous emergency personnel responded to the scene including Turbeville Volunteer Fire Department, Virginia State Police, Virginia Department of Transportation, Halifax County Sheriff’s Office, and Halifax County Emergency Services. Firefighters were able to contain the fuel spill and prevent further environmental contamination. A driver and passenger of the truck were both transported to Halifax Regional Hospital for minor injuries. Environmental Restoration Services from Raleigh, NC, contracted by Werner Enterprises, responded to the scene late yesterday evening to perform removal of the spilled fuel and contaminated soil. The contractors are expected back in the coming days to complete the environmental restoration.
