Oil Tanker Flips Over in Hampden Driveway

HAMPDEN, Maine (WABI) - An Irving propane truck flipped over in Hampden Monday on a narrow driveway.

The truck's wheelbase was wider than the snow-covered driveway.

It slipped off the side and tipped over.

The driver was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

"The driver has stated it was fully loaded with liquid propane at time it went off the road, so it's going to be a quite the operation to get it back up on its wheels," said David Mushrall of the Hampden Police Department.

The narrowness of the driveway made recovery difficult, but the truck was righted without incident.
