FAULKNER COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - A truck overturned near El Paso on Monday.
Public information officer Bill Sadler said the truck, which was carrying an unknown amount of oil-based cutting mud, overturned on Highway 5 north of El Paso around 7:30 p.m. He added that a small amount of diesel from the truck fuel tank also spilled across the highway.
Sadler said Charles McCoy, of Malvern, lost control of the vehicle just prior to the crash, and sludge spilled into the ditch where the truck turned over. Whether or not McCoy was injured in the accident is unknown.
Clean-up operations were coordinated by the White County OES representative, Tamara Jenkins, and the truck is operated by Minute Man Environmental Services based in Milton, Penn.
The Office of Emergency Management said that the truck was not carrying material from the cleanup at Mayflower.
