At approximately 9:30AM this morning, a loaded propane truck overturned on Ferry Road near Old Ironhill Road in Doylestown Township. Due to the accident, the truck leaked the propane that it had been carrying.

The emergency management team from Bucks County Hazmat has determined that the propane will need to be burned off. The burn off could take a considerable amount of time. Please avoid the area as it is currently blocked off.

Fortunately, there are few New Britain residents in the affected area. The residents, along with the local school districts have been notified of the situation.

Bucks County Hazmat and Doylestown Township are managing the event with the support of New Britain Township.
