Propane truck rolls, clean up takes eight hours

DUNDEE—A truck carrying propane went off Lakemont-Himrod Road Monday morning, April 6, requiring eight hours of clean up work.
According to an incident report from the Yates County Sheriff’s Office, the truck was being driven Jeffrey Larzelere of Keuka Park. The report said that Larzelere was driving while on a cell phone and went off the road, rolling the truck. The driver was airlifted to Strong Hospital by Mercy Flight for chest and rib injuries.
The rolled truck was then leaking propane, a job that took eight hours and nine fire departments to clean up. The fire departments present were Dundee, Himrod, Dresden, Penn Yan, Tyrone, Watkins Glen, Wayne and West Lake Road, the Yates County Fire Coordinator and New York State Fire Department.
According to the Sheriff, six assisted fire crews were also there. Yates Deputies were assisted by the New York State Police and the New York State Environmental Conservation police.
Ray Miller, with the Dundee Fire Department, said the truck was put upright and taken away by two wreckers. While it was still at the scene, Miller said the truck was continuously leaking propane. He explained they had to keep water flowing to at the site to disperse the propane vapor fumes.
