Tractor-trailer ran over sidewalk grate, puncturing fuel tank

Sand still covers portions of West Main Street between Pinckney Street and Enterprise Street, the remnants of the cleanup of a diesel fuel spill that happened Friday morning. Reports from the scene indicated that a tractor-trailer turning off Highway 18 ran over a grate on the sidewalk, puncturing the fuel tank and spilling diesel fuel down Main Street. According to reports, the driver was cited for a truck route violation, as 18-wheelers are not supposed to travel down Main Street.
