A tractor trailer crash on Lookout Mountain yesterday took the life of the truck driver who was delivering gasoline. The accident occured on Highway 157 about 17 miles north of Cloudland in Dade County.
The Georgia State Patrol is still investigating the crash which apparently happened when the driver tried to over-correct his truck after topping a hill. Wittnesses in the area reported hearing several loud explosians as the gasoline in the tanker ignited. Hazmat teams worked all day at the wreck scene.
The drivers name had not been released as of last night, pending notification of the family.
