An accident on State Route 43 in Amsterdam happened right after 2:15 on Sunday afternoon and resulted in a tanker truck overturning.

Emergency officials on scene say the tractor trailer that is operated by Pilot was traveling southbound on the two lane highway when it left the road before overturning.

The truck was carrying more than 8,000 gallons of what officials are calling wet gas, a byproduct of the oil and gas industry.

Hazmat officials at the scene say approximately 2,000 gallons of that flammable gas leaked due to a tear in the side of the tank.

The driver was taken to an area hospital by medical helicopter. The Carroll County Hazmat Team in coordination with the Environmental Protection Agency cleared the scene and dug up the contaminated soil.
