Tanker truck tips over spilling fertilizer onto roadway

Posted: Updated:

A tanker truck full of corn fertilizer tips over this afternoon.. causing a road to shut down for hours.
It happened around 6 this evening on Shaffer Road...just west of Stark road...in Hope Township..
That's in Midland County.


The driver for the "Auburn Bean and Grain Company" told us that he was driving along Shaffer Road when he pulled onto the shoulder to let traffic pass.


Upon doing so...the soft shoulder gave way...causing the truck to tip over.
The road is re-opened.
There are no environmental hazards to report and the driver was not injured.
