HARTSELLE, Ala. – At 10 a.m., an 18-wheeler propane tanker ran off the road and tilted over near the intersection of Carl Prince Drive and South Sparkman in Hartselle. Police say the trailer ran off road into a ditch after the driver turned too sharply.

Although no spills were observed, police have asked people who live nearby to clear the area as a precaution while crews work to right the truck. As of Monday afternoon, crews were still working.

No injuries were reported after the incident.
