Propane truck flips after driver loses control

A loaded propane truck flipped multiple times after the driver lost control of the vehicle and hit an embankment.

Hazmat crews were dispatched to the scene around 11 a.m. Friday at Pabco Road and Lake Mead Boulevard, but found no leak, the Clark County Fire Department said in a release.

Crews disconnected the battery and activated the emergency shutoff switch.

Officials said the tank had a capacity of 3,000 gallons and was 75 percent full.

The driver did receive some medical aid but suffered only minor injuries, officials said.
