UPDATE: Route 63 back open after tanker truck flips

MONROE, OH (FOX19) – - State Route 63 at Yankee Road is now open after a tanker truck carrying corrosive material turned over in the intersection.

The incident happened just before 2 p.m. The area was completely closed for cleanup and for the risk of a potential leak.

Police say the entire trailer came loose from the tractor and was on the ground.  Fortunately, no one was hurt and there was no leak from the tank.

A dispatcher did not know what chemical the tanker truck was carrying.

The intersection is west of downtown Monroe and falls in both Monroe and Lemon Township, but Monroe provides emergency services for both.
