Tanker Burns In I-95 Fire, Falls Off Tow Truck In Franklin, Prompting Evacuations, State Police Say

Some homes and businesses in Franklin have been evacuated, and Route 32 is closed, after a tanker fell off a tow truck late Friday morning, state police say.

The accident happened about 11:20 a.m. on Route 32, when a tanker truck that had been involved in an earlier fire on I-95 was being towed to Bozrah, they said. The tanker tipped over or rolled off the tow truck.


The road is closed between routes 87 and 2, police said. No injuries were reported.


State police didn’t say what was in the tank, but the state Department of Transportation said the mishap caused a hazardous materials spill.




In another post on FB they stated the tanker was involved in another incident.

The wrecker was towing it from the rear and dollied the front.

The dolly lost its wheels and tanker loaded with nitrogen rolled.

(this information is unconfirmed)
