Truck on its side at Texaco Town

post by Howard B. Owens in accident, Pavilion

A tractor-trailer is on its side at the intersection of Route 63 and Route 20, Pavilion.

Injuries, if any, are believed to be minor. Fuel is leaking.

Pavilion fire and Mercy EMS responding.

Following a day of rain, temperatures dropped quickly tonight to below freezing, creating slick road conditions. Use caution if traveling.

UPDATE 2:21 a.m.: A firefighter notes, "There's spots on the road where you can't even walk, so you've got to be careful."

UPDATE 2:23 a.m.: No injuries.

UPDATE 2:24 a.m.: The driver tells another driver that the truck is not leaking full.

UPDATE 2:28 a.m.: The truck is off the road, on the side of the road, Route 63.

UPDATE 2:42 a.m.: The truck is hauling frozen and fresh food for restaurants. If the roads stay as slick as they are, a deputy reports, a wrecker is going to have a hard time moving it. Since it's not blocking, it may just stay where it is for the time being. 

UPDATE 11:10 a.m.: Route 63 between Roanoke Road and Route 20 is being closed while a wrecker rights the truck.

UPDATE 1:08 p.m.: Route 63 has reopened.
