BROOKS - A tractor-trailer overturned, spilling oil into the ditch along Highway 1020 at the Brooks Hill Road intersection Wednesday afternoon.
The driver of the truck, a white male, was headed westbound on Brooks Hill. Taking a sharp right turn onto 1020, the truck left the pavement with the tanker coming to a rest upside-down in the ditch.
According to Bullitt County Sheriffs Dep. Chad Kolter, the truck contained approximately 25 tons of asphalt oil, which was spilling into the ditch through a top hatch in the tanker.
