A fuel spill has now been cleaned-up after a tanker overturned in Phenix City on Monday, Aug. 18.
The driver was identified as Orlando Lamourt. Police say Lamourt lost control of the tanker as he attempted to take a left turn curve on Summerville Rd.
Lamourt was transported to Midtown Medical Center and treated for minor injuries.
The incident happened around 4:30 p.m. at the corner of 35th St. and Summerville R. The truck started leaking gasoline through a hole the size of a water hose into a yard along the road.
Phenix City Fire Chief Kristin Kennedy said first unit responders arrived on the scene around 4:30 p.m.
Kennedy said the tanker was carrying approximately 7,000 gallons of fuel.
Fletcher Oil Company, the company that owns the tanker, arrived to the scene and pumped the fuel out of the tanker. The company called KAM Consultants Corporation to come in and continue the Hazmat clean up.
