The driver of a propane tank truck was injured when his truck overturned near the intersection of Delong Road and Delong Lane, in southeast Lexington, around 2:15 p.m. Thursday.
The driver swerved to avoid a car, then overcorrected and ran his truck through a fence and into a field, police Lt. Scott Blakely said. Blakely declined to name the driver, who was taken to St. Joseph East Hospital with "very minor injuries." Delong Road was closed until about 4:50 p.m.
Blakely said the cylinder on the tanker was not damaged and no hazardous materials were involved.
