Propane tank rollover closes Old Kings Road

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Old Kings Road north of Dunn Avenue in Northwest Jacksonville is closed Friday afternoon while the fire department burns off thousands of gallons of propane from a tanker truck that overturned in a ditch.

Police said the driver overcorrected when making a turn and ran off the road. There were no injuries.

The truck was no longer leaking, but Jacksonville Fire Rescue personnel were doing a controlled burn to make sure no propane was left after the accident.

Old Kings Road between Plummer and Kings Forest was for a couple hours until the burn-off was completed and the wreckage was cleared.
