The driver was taken to the hospital to get checked out.

But firefighters are concerned about “environmentally sensitive products” on the truck leaking out.

They say crews have dug a trench around the wreck to contain the material.

Fire officials say they’ve seen several rollovers like this one at this location over the last year.
