ACCIDENT INVOLVING ANHYDROUS TANKS

 

The Greenville Fire Protection District was paged to a report of an accident involving an overturned anhydrous tank Saturday evening around 5PM on Route 140, just west of Greenville Regional Hospital.  According to the Sheriff's Department accident report, the driver stated he was traveling down the hill, and picking up speed from the tanks on the trailer. He then applied the brakes causing the trailer to spin 180 degrees and the tank to fall on its side.  Neither tank was leaking and fire personnel assisted in getting the tank back up on the trailer.
