An 18-wheeler tipped over while pulling out of a gas station on the south side of town and it's happened before at the same exact spot. It happened on Almeda Genoa and McGrath. The driver was pulling out when his back wheels went into a ditch, causing the rig to topple. The truck was carrying 9,000 gallons of a chemical which luckily did not leak. The driver suffered minor injuries.

At least two other similar accidents involving big rigs have happened at the same ditch.
