Route 30 in Manheim Township shut down, 1 injured after tanker overturns

A stretch of eastbound Route 30 in Manheim Township was shut down early Tuesday evening after a tanker vehicle crashed and rolled over, according to a supervisor with Lancaster County-Wide Communications.

The double-axle tanker was traveling east along Route 30 near mile marker 266.7 when it flipped or rolled over while attempting to merge onto a ramp toward Route 222 North shortly before 7 p.m., the supervisor said.

One person was injured in the crash, the supervisor said.

What appeared to be sludge or sewage began spilling out of the tanker following the crash, a dispatch report stated.
