A truck carrying over a dozen tons of liquid fertilizer struck a house in Wyoming County on Saturday.
According to the sheriff’s department, 31-year-old James Winter was driving a flatbed truck carrying 15 tons of liquid fertilizer westbound on Minkel Road when his brakes stopped working, causing him to travel across Route 78 and strike a house.
Sheriffs say Winter was taken to Wyoming County Community Health System with minor injuries. The people in the home were not injured.
Investigators say very little fertilizer was spilled, however, nearly 100 gallons of diesel fuel was spilled.
Sheriffs say they are still investigating the accident, but no charges have been filed.
