MFRD Responds to Overturned Milk Truck
Updated On: Aug 04, 2014

MFRD Responds to Overturned Milk Truck in Front of Heritage Farms

Murfreesboro, TN—Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department’s Engine 15 and Rescues 2 and 9 responded to an overturned tractor trailer truck full of milk at 976 New Salem Highway (near Heritage Farms Dairy) around 9:00 Monday morning. 

Upon arrival, crews discovered that the driver of the semi, which was slowly leaking milk, was trapped inside. Crews extricated the driver, who was then transported to Saint Thomas Rutherford hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Crews plugged holes in the tank to slow down the milk leak. 

A towing company arrived on scene, turned the truck back upright, and towed it off site. 

Engine 15’s crew remained on site during the process in case of fire. An environmental cleanup crew was called in to mitigate the spilled milk and engine fluids.
