The damaged tanker, with some of the now cooled #hot #asphalt it spilled still visible. Tow truck hasn’t moved it yet, Creedmoor Rd near Eglantyne Ct remains closed, and there’s still asphalt in woods and pond that crews must remove. #ABC11 pic.twitter.com/VI85zJfPz1— Anthony Wilson (@AnthonyABC11) March 7, 2018
ABC11 has learned that the truck was carrying 26 tons of liquid asphalt and was coming from Wilmington.
Crews had to wait for another truck to arrive so they could transfer the liquid contents.
The roadway was closed until late-morning.
