West Beale St. Crash
On Tuesday morning, January 28th, at about 9:50 am, a traffic incident on W. Beale St. caused significant traffic congestion. A semi pulling a flatbed trailer loaded with a large cylinder (empty) used to store liquid nitrogen was entering W. Beale St. from a private drive. The motion of the trailer rolling over the curb caused the chains used to secure the load to break. The large cylinder rolled off of the trailer onto the roadway and into a Ford pickup truck that was westbound on Beale St. No injuries were reported, only significant damage to the Ford truck. The driver of the semi was issued a citation for Unsafe Left Turn. The incident caused the roadway to be restricted for about 1 1/2hrs. There was no leak of gas.
