The driver of a tanker truck was uninjured when the tractor trailer he was driving overturned while making a right turn onto Ovilla Road after exiting Interstate Highway 35E. Emergency crews were dispatched to the scene at 4:04 a.m. Tuesday.

“Our understanding is this gentleman was delivering a chemical over here to Timco (logistics) for delivery to Magnablend. The name of the chemical is called Flopam and it is a lubricant when they do fracking work for gas drilling,” Waxahachie Fire Department Chief Ricky Boyd said. “Anyway, he was delivering over here to TimCo and was going to change out trucks in order to deliver it out to Magnablend because Farm-to-Market 1446 is not rated for the gross vehicle weight for the tractor and trailer as is.”
