— A truck carrying a radioactive compound crashed on southbound Interstate 95 in Cumberland County shortly before midday Wednesday.

Two of the 4 1,000-gallon containers of uranium hexafluoride the truck was bring fell off throughout the crash, however none of the product seemed dripping from the containers, stated Gene Booth, Cumberland County’s emergency situation management director.

Hazmat groups were on the scene to address the situation, as were State Highway Patrol, state Department of Transportation teams and firefighters.

” [They’re] creating a prepare for clean-up and removal of those containers securely out of the highway,” Booth said.

Crews spent more than 3 hours getting the two containers back onto the trailer from which they fell.

The crash was reported at 11:45 a.m. in between Exit 55 and Exit 58 for Interstate 295 near Wade. I-95 was closed down in both directions for more than an hour before northbound lanes resumed.

The truck was run by Hittman Transportation Services, based in Oak Ridge, Tenn.

. The business has a good security record, according to U.S. Department of Transport records. DOT records reveal only five citations for dangerous products concerns since March 2019, however just one of those included failure to comply with regulations. 2 of the citations were for incorrect placards, while 2 others were for a bundle not being identified correctly and an absence of documentation.

Hittman had no lorries or drivers pulled off the road over the last 2 years, following 173 hazmat and 311 motorist inspections, DOT records reveal. 8 automobiles were sidelined during 280 car assessments during that time, but its 2.9 percent out-of-service rate was far below the nationwide average of 27 percent.
