A tanker truck loaded with liquid propane overturned Tuesday night on US 127 near the Mercer County line, forcing nearby residents to evacuate their homes.
The accident occurred when the driver of the truck, Charles E. Ballard, 45, of LTJ Transport in Burgin failed to make a right turn on Wheat School Road and went into a roadside ditch, according to a news release from the Kentucky State Police.
No propane spilled, but US 127 was closed for more than six hours while emergency responders removed the truck from the ditch.
