Glasgow Road shut down for four hours
LISBON — Ray Hall, 50, of East Palestine was transported Tuesday to Salem Regional Medical Center after the Salem Propane tanker truck he was driving on Glasgow Road in Madison Township rolled as he avoided hitting two deer.
The injured Hall reportedly climbed out of the tanker truck and walked to a nearby home for help. He was attended to by West Point EMS personnel until a North Star Ambulance crew arrived at the scene.
Firefighters with the West Point Fire Department responded with eight personnel on two engines and a tanker truck. Chief Wayne Chamberlain said no evacuations were necessary because the tanker, carrying approximately 2,500 gallons of propane, had no leaks.
The accident occurred just before 2:15 p.m. Tuesday, closing down Glasgow Road until about 6:15 p.m.
According to Highway Patrol Trooper Brian Kavanagh, the tanker was eastbound on Glasgow Road, went off the right shoulder and got into a sideways slide before flipping over.
The crash, the trooper said, remains under investigation.
Ed Geary’s Towing of Leetonia uprighted the truck and towed it.
