No use crying over spilled milk

GREENSBURG – The Decatur County Sheriff’s Department (DCSD), Decatur County EMS and Burney Fire Department were called to the scene of an overturned tanker truck on County Road 300 South Tuesday afternoon around 4:30 p.m.

The truck was driven by Gary Jordan, according to Lt. Rob Duckworth of the DCSD. The final accident report was not filed as of press time Wednesday, so the official cause of the accident is unknown.

Jordan was not injured in the crash, but the same cannot be said of his truck and tanker. The truck left the road on the left side, where it entered a deep roadside ditch with steep sides. When emergency responders arrived, both the truck and trailer were on their sides. Much of the truck was in the ditch, while the top side of the tanker rested in an adjacent field.

Because of the crash, the tanker, which was carrying raw milk, began leaking milk into the field. It is unclear how much milk was spilled into the field. Duckworth reported that another truck was brought in to siphon the remaining milk in the tank.

Emergency responders joked that they should have remembered their cups and cookies to go along with the milk. Because no one was injured, they were able to see the humor in the situation. After all, they don’t get called to a tanker of spilled milk every day.

More details about this accident will appear in a future edition of the Daily News after the report is completed and released.
