Video from  on YouTube of a tanker truck crash and fire around 9:30 AM Friday on Route 15 near Liberty Township (Tioga County), Pennsylvania.

Cheryl R. Clarke, SunGazette.com:

According to state police, Jeffrey D. Krout, 27, of Wellsboro, was traveling south in a fully loaded 2005 Peterbilt fuel tanker in the right lane, when he served across the left lane and onto the shoulder of the road.

The truck, which was carrying about 4,600 gallons of diesel fuel, then swerved back across both lanes of travel, left the roadway, traveled onto the right side berm and overturned.

Krout extricated himself from the vehicle just before it caught fire.

The Wellsboro Gazette:

Krout reportedly sustained a minor leg injury and he refused medical treatment. Krout will reportedly be charged with careless driving and rollover violations of the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code.

PennDOT members were diligent in not allowing anyone near the scene of the crash, including members of the media. By the time a Wellsboro Gazette reporter could get near the scene, the truck and burnt wreckage were being towed away.
