Leading Senior Constable Ross Draper estimated about 10,000 litres could have been lost.

“It appears at this stage the rear trailer has gone into a curb, gone too far to the left and the wheels on the rear trailer have been caught in the dirt and tipped over,” he said.

“We were there for a few hours before we could get it back onto the road.”

A crane had to be brought in to tip the tanker back onto its wheels.
