Truck rolls spilling molasses on townsville road

A trucker in north-west Queensland, who lost more than a metre of his truck after an explosive discharge in the town of St John, had to be airlifted to hospital for injuries after his truck was rolled onto sand dunes on Saturday.

The trailer on which the truck was sitting exploded during the incident near Trelleborg at about 2.40pm.

The dri우리카지노ver of the truck, who had just returned from a long-haul motorway trip in South Australia, escaped without major injuries and is expected to survive the crash.

Fire crews extinguished the explosio바카라n and the trailer, which had a trailer hitch, was left with some damage, with it ruddened up.

Emergency services said there was a high likelihood of a total collapse of the trailer because of the extreme size of the incident and the length of sand dune.
