Crash leads to detour; hog waste spill

A crash at the intersection of NC 211 Bypass and NC 242 near Bladenboro on Monday afternoon led to a hog waste spill and a detour.  Motorists are asked to use J. T. Britt as an alternate route for NC 242.

A truck that was transporting about 5,000 gallons hog lagoon waste overturned at the intersection of NC 242 and the NC 211 Bypass causing the truck to lose some of its load.  The incident did not occur near any residences, said Bladen County Deputy Fire Marshal Kenneth Clark.

“DOT is in route and the farmer is in route because he will need to clean it up,” said Clark.
