Crews close off one lane of traffic beside an overturned truck along Hubbard-Masury Road in Hubbard Township on Wednesday morning, Aug. 5, 2015.

HUBBARD TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKBN) – A truck driver escaped injury after his rig rolled over along Hubbard-Masury Road in Hubbard Township Wednesday morning. The rig ended up off the road, but crews were keeping the southbound lane blocked off for safety reasons.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says the driver went around a curve in the roadway when they believe a chain holding a tank on the flatbed trailer broke loose, causing the weight of the rig to shift to the right. The tank did remain attached to the trailer. It’s not known what was in the tank and there was no major leak at the scene.
