Dougherty County - An oil spill Tuesday when a truck carrying used motor oil crashed off the Liberty Expressway in Dougherty County.
Forty-four-year-old Michael Lee Miller of Cairo was driving a Four Way Oil company truck on 19 South when he lost control near Dorough Road.
Fire officials say the truck's suspension spring broke. The truck went into the woods, shearing the unloading valve. A hundred to 150 gallons of used motor oil spilled. The driver is in fair condition. Captain Pete Giddens with the Albany Fire Department, says, "We had to dis-robe him on the side of the road and wash the oil off of him before sending him to hospital. So, we wouldn't contaminate hospital workers with all that oil he had on him."
Albany's Hazmat team stopped the truck from spilling all of it's 12-hundred gallons of oil.
Four Way Oil company will have to hire a private contractor to clean up the spill. Environmental Protection Division will supervise and investigate the accident.
