An accident on US 70 blocked all of the westbound lanes in Garner Tuesday.

Officials said a white pick-up truck carrying pesticides collided with a blue pick-up just before 11 a.m. at the intersection of US 70 Hwy and McCormick Drive.

The collison caused the white truck to overturn and spill a small amount of household pesticides into the roadway.

The driver, Ronald White, was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The other driver, Charles Dorman, was not hurt. He has been cited for failure to yield.
