Truck overturns, causing sizable fuel spill

GERMAN TWP., Ohio (WDTN) – A truck driver overturned his rig outside of Springfield Wednesday morning.

German Township police say distracted driving might be to blame.

They say the driver lost control on a curve in the 1700 block of Ballentine Pike around 10:00 a.m.

He was not hurt, but there was a sizable fuel spill that had to be cleaned up.

A nearby resident says something needs to be done to make the curve safer. He says guardrails would be a good start.

The driver was cited for failure to control the truck.

The road was back open after cleanup was finished. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
