Tanker ac­ci­dent

Central Leader - - NEWS -

A mini diesel tanker tipped over on the north­west­ern mo­tor­way on Wed­nes­day. Emer­gency ser­vices were alerted just be­fore 8am that the tanker had tipped on its side in the con­struc­tion area be­tween Water­view and St Lukes Rd. Fire Ser­vice north­ern com­mu­ni­ca­tions shift man­ager Paul Rad­den says the ac­ci­dent oc­curred off the mo­tor­way and as a pre­cau­tion an am­bu­lance was called. ‘‘There were no per­sons trapped and no one was in­jured. Rub­ber neck­ing could have slowed traf­fic down a bit,’’ he says.
