Tanker carrying aviation fuel hits South Carolina home


ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) – A driver has been ticketed after a tanker carrying aviation fuel collided with a South Carolina home.

Authorities tell local media outlets the wreck happened at around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday in Anderson County.

Officials say the tanker had just filled up and was carrying 4,000 gallons of fuel when the driver ran off the road in a curve, hit a ditch and utility pole before overturning in the front yard of a home, hitting its porch.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol says 47-year-old Darryll Mabry was charged with driving too fast for conditions.

Officials say less than a gallon of fuel spilled. No injuries were reported.
