WAYNE TWP., Ohio (FOX19) - State Route 503 north of State Route 744 at the Butler/Preble County line will reopen at 11 p.m. Tuesday night, Butler County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Kim Peters says.

A truck that crashed and spilled its load of granular fertilizer shut down the road Tuesday morning and it was closed throughout the day so crews could clear away the spill and upright the massive vehicle, Peters said.

The truck took out several poles and wires and some guardrail when it wrecked about 4:30 p.m. Monday, according to the sheriff’s office.

The driver sustained minor injuries, she added.

The Ohio EPA will return to the site Wednesday to determine if any further cleanup is necessary.
