Propane truck overturns on Bow side street

New Hampshire Union Leader

December 18. 2013 1:30PM

An overturned propane truck on a Bow side street Wednesday resulted in no known injuries, but brought down live electrical wires and will take several hours to clear the roadway.

The truck flipped on White Rock Hill Road about 1 p.m., a fire official said. There are no reported injuries and no plans to evacuate the area, the official said.

Fire crews are waiting for Unitil to arrive to disconnect electrical wires.

The contents of the overturned truck then must be transferred to another propane truck before a wrecker can upright the vehicle and remove it from the roadway, the fire official said.

The process could take several hours, he said.

The cause of the rollover is not immediately known.

This is the second accident involving a propane truck on New Hampshire roadways Wednesday. Another crashed on Interstate-293 in Manchester in the morning, closing the highway.
