A driver walked away from a tractor-trailer crash uninjured Friday afternoon on U.S. 59 Business near U.S. 77.
Ladarrian Anthony, 25, of San Antonio, tried to take a left off the U.S. 59 feeder road onto U.S. 59 South toward Goliad in a 10-wheel trailer-tractor, said Trooper Dillion Steadman, of the Texas Department of Public Safety. He took the turn at an unsafe speed that caused the vehicle to land on its side and leak a large amount of non-hazardous liquid onto the roadway.
“It was a little bit of transmission fluid and motor oil, but mostly calcium fluoride,” Steadman said.
Anthony, who works for Drillwell Energy Services, received a citation for driving at an unsafe speed.
The Victoria County Sheriff’s Office, Department of Public Safety, Victoria Fire Department and Quail Creek Volunteer Fire Department responded to the crash about 5 p.m.
The wreck is still under investigation by the DPS.
