A portion of U.S. 127 in Williams County was closed north of the Ohio Turnpike on Friday while the Brady Township Fire Department removed gas cylinders from an over-turned tractor-trailer rig.
The accident was reported at 8:46 a.m. to Williams County 9-1-1 Friday morning. Reports indicated that the big-rig traveled off the right side.
Authorities said that the driver sustained minor injuries; however, he able to free himself from the wreckage before emergency crews arrived on the scene.
The load contained a variety of gasses; some of which were considered flammable. The hazardous materials prompted officials to shut down the highway as precaution until the substances could be contained and the area clean.
