Propane Tanker Crashes and Rolls Over on 405 Fwy in Sherman Oaks

SHERMAN OAKS, CA (March 11, 2019) – A tanker, loaded with 9,400 gallons of liquid propane—crashed early in the morning on Sunday on the 405 Freeway in Sherman Oaks. The March 10 crash occurred in the freeway’s southbound lanes, close to the interchange for the 101 Freeway.

The time was roughly 7:20 a.m.

According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, the tanker struck the divider in the center of the freeway. None of the liquid propane, which is very flammable, spilled or leaked from the tanker. Due to risk of fire and explosion, authorities had to close the freeway while the propane was loaded into another tanker.

Reports say that respondents took the tanker’s driver—identified as a man 51 years old—the the hospital with an injury that was described as not life threatening. The man’s name and city of residence have not been reported. The type of injury he suffered has not been reported.

According to an officer with the California Highway Patrol, the impact from the tanker striking the divider caused fragments of concrete to fly on the freeway. Debris struck some vehicles that were passing by on the freeway’s shoulder. Vehicles then had flat tires.

Investigators are examining the details and information to understand the circumstances that led to the crash.
