Hannibal (WSYR-TV) – State Police are investigating what caused a tanker truck carrying propane to roll over in Oswego County.
The incident happened at about 10:15 a.m. on Tuesday in the town of Hannibal when a 2009 GMC Propane Tanker was traveling eastbound on State Route 3, a half mile west of County Route 7.

County Route 7 and Pollard Road had to be temporarily closed as crews worked to clear the tanker truck.
No propane leaked during the incident.
Troopers say the driver was taken to Oswego Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
