BOLIVAR, Ohio (AP) -- Residents evacuated after a tanker truck crash on Interstate 77 in Northeast Ohio were allowed to return to their homes early Saturday, authorities said.
People within a half-mile radius were asked to leave their homes in sparsely populated Pike Township and Bethlehem Township as a precaution after a tanker truck flipped Friday afternoon. The truck was carrying liquid propane, said Lt. Eric Sheppard of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
The driver died after the truck hit a guardrail and flipped, the patrol said. William F. Rice, 48, of Coshocton, was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the cab, the patrol said. There was no spill.
About three miles of northbound Interstate 77 in Stark County were closed after the crash and did not reopen until 8 a.m. Saturday, once the truck was unloaded and removed, the patrol said.
