The Torch Lake Township Fire Department responded to an accident involving their own truck this afternoon.
The tanker rolled into the ditch right in front of the station on US 31
The tanker was heading north bound on US 31 and tried to make a left too fast.
The Antrim County Sheriff’s Department says the driver lost control causing the truck to flip over.
Firefighters say it took about an hour to flip the truck right side up.
Firefighter Chad Kotlarz says, “From the time the tow truck company arrived we were able to assist them with the getting the tank clear of water to get some of the weight off of it and drain as much as we could and we were able to with a little bit of work get it rolled.”
The driver was taken to Charlevoix Area Hospital for neck pain and will receive a citation for speed and not wearing a seat belt.
