He then lost control of the rig and smashed into the guardrail and turned over.
Rescue workers transported the driver and a passenger to Roanoke Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.
The hazardous cargo did NOT leak from the tanker.
But a haz-mat team was called to the scene to clean up a diesel fuel leak and supervise the removal of the toluene.

So school administrators are looking to find the cause.
They're contacting former teachers to find out their reasons for leaving the school system.
Compared to nearby systems the current rate of 10 percent in Rockbridge is high.
Roanoke and Botetourt Counties averaged between 4 to 6 percent.
Retirement and a career change are common factors for leaving, but money apparently is the leading reason.
