PATTERSON TOWNSHIP, Pa. —
Hazmat crews were put on standby Monday morning after a 3,000-gallon propane truck crashed into a creek in Beaver County.
Dispatchers from 911 said the truck overturned into a creek along Route 51 at Wildwood Road in Patterson Township just before 11 a.m.
The driver of the truck was stuck for a brief time but was rescued and taken to Heritage Valley Hospital, police said. He was released by Monday night.
Channel 11’s Vince Sims reported that crews were able to get the truck out of the creek just after 3 p.m. by using a crane and all roads were reopened by 6 p.m.
During the process of removing the truck, authorities evacuated a nearby mobile home park as a precaution.
