DOVER — A tanker truck with a full load of molten sulfur overturned on eastbound State Road 60 in east Hillsborough County early Tuesday, closing traffic for several hours.
All lanes of S.R. 60 were reopened by 7:45 p.m., troopers said.
The crash took place at about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday on S.R. 60 west of Sydney Washer Road, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Albert C. Books, 38, of Riverview, was driving a 2014 Peterbilt tanker truck when he lost control, hit a sign and overturned. He suffered minor injuries and was cited for careless driving.
Traffic was shut down in both directions for several hours as crews worked to clean up the crash site and keep the tank from rupturing, troopers said.
