Kentucky State Police Post 10 Public Affairs Officer Shane Jacobs reported no injuries were reported in a fuel truck wreck on Crider Lane in Black Mountain on Sunday.
Jacobs said no fuel escaped the tanker when it overturned.
“Jim Roddy was operating the fuel truck when it overturned,” said Jacobs. “Trooper Andy Soltess, who investigated the wreck, said there was no leakage or any type of fluid coming out of that vehicle anywhere.”
Jacobs further reported no citations were issued at the scene of the wreck.
Evarts Mayor Eddie Manning said he wanted the public to know the city does not obtain any of the city’s water supply from the river or creeks in the area.
Manning said the city draws the water supply from wells and mine water in the Evarts area.
