VIDEO: Rolled over septic truck at Langley roundabout knocks out streetlight

Driver treated from minor injuries, witness reports

A rolled over septic truck in Langley had a roundabout blocked for several hours Wednesday night.

Emergency crews responded to the 7400-block of 232nd Street, just north of the Trans-Canada Highway, around 9:30 p.m. to find septic truck on its side.

A witness on the scene believes the driver lost control while navigating the roundabout when the truck hit a street lamp and turned on its side.

“The odorous contents of the truck’s reservoir were spilling out on the road,” the witness told the Langley Advance Times.

The driver escaped with minor injuries and was treated at the scene by paramedics, but not taken to hospital, the witness added.

A tow truck was called in to right the truck.
