((As this tanker truck turned off of 460 west in Roanoke County onto Cloverdale Road the driver lost control and flipped the rig on it's top. As a result a gash in the side of the tank leaked over 2000 gallons of diesel fuel into the ground and down a storm drain. That led the fuel to Glade Creek--water that is used for livestock, not drinking water. Officials set up dams to catch the fuel.
