Accident Snarls 64-East

Posted January 17, 1999 6:00 a.m. EST

— Traffic is back to normal along Highway 64, after an early morning accident tied up the road for hours.

A flatbed truck jackknifed on Highway 64, east of Knightdale, and one of its fuel tanks ruptured. 50 gallons of diesel fuel spilled in a grassy area off the road.

A hazardous material screw cleaned up the spill.

The driver wasn't hurt. He says a dump trunk cut in front of him and he veered too quickly.

The accident was still tying up eastbound traffic during the noon hour.
