Homes Evacuated After Kerosene Truck Flips in Lebanon

Chase Lewis

Part of Lebanon Avenue in Lebanon is closed after a kerosene truck flipped over.

A truck carrying 2,000 gallons of kerosene flipped over in Lebanon as steady snowfall made the roads slick Tuesday.

The driver was taken to a medical facility after crashing in the area of 331 Lebanon Avenue. It's not clear how serious his or her injuries may have been.

Kerosene leaked from the overturned truck and homes in the area were evacuated.

Part of the road was shut down while officials worked to clear the scene. A hazardous materials company arrived on scene to pump out fuel. The process was expected to take hours.

The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection also responded.
