An asphalt truck crash on Klees Mill Rd. in the Morgan Run Environmental area closed the road early Saturday morning. Gamber & Community Fire Co. units were alerted to the collision at 8:14 am. Paramedic 139 arrived on the scene first and reported that a large truck was on its side and multiple wires were down across the road. The truck was hauling hot asphalt and the entire load spilled across the road. A small amount of diesel fuel was also leaking from the vehicle's saddle tank. There were no injuries reported.
Assistance was requested from BGE, Maryland Dept. of the Environment (MDE), and Carroll County Roads. The Carroll County Sheriffs Office was also on the scene.
Members of the Carroll County Haz Mat team along with MDE drained the fuel tank. BGE worked on removing the downed wires and Carroll County Roads Department prepared to remove the asphalt from the roadway. The sheriffs deputies were awaiting the arrival of a heavy duty wrecker to tow the damaged truck.
Gamber units cleared the scene just after 11:00 am.
