Bulk carrier overturns in neighborhood

By George Garza



A large tractor trailer pulling a dry goods bulk carrier trailer flipped on its side in a Vidor neighborhood of south of Old Highway 90 on Wednesday morning. The large steel tank of the trailer was full of a non-hazardous powdered catalyst and remained intact through the rollover. No product or materials, other than a few gallons of diesel exhaust fluid, was spilled during the lurch of the paired vehicles.


According to a City of Vidor Police Department report, the 18 wheeled tractor trailer truck was southbound o n Sa r g e n t St r e e t between Old Highway 90 East and Orange Street using the detour around the bridge construction on Old 90, when the driver decided to use Sarver Street to shorten his drive back to Old Highway 90.
