HOPKINTON (CBS) – A truck crash forced some homes to be evacuated in Hopkinton and a street to be shut down for more than a day.

The truck was carrying 3,500 gallons of propane when it tipped over on Spring Street around 4:30 p.m. Thursday. Crews spent the night and following morning cleaning up the mess.

Police then said the road and the surrounding area will remain closed until at least Friday night while crews continue to offload the propane. Once that’s done they need to have a safety review.

“The road will remain closed until the vehicle is uprighted and removed which may take an additional five hours,” the town tweeted Friday afternoon. “This is an estimate and we appreciate everybody’s understanding and cooperation. The safety of our first responders and nearby residents is our top priority.”

No injuries have been reported. Police have not said what caused the truck to crash.
