Waste-water tanker truck rolls in Williamsburg crash

A tanker truck carrying waste water rolled over and emptied some of its contents in a crash Tuesday morning on Capital Landing Road in Williamsburg, according to Williamsburg Police. 

Shortly after 8 a.m., the truck was traveling on one of the city's main routes when an Audi pulled out into its path near Bypass Road, Williamsburg Police Major Greg Riley said.

The tanker truck struck the Audi and rolled several times, then hit a Kia SUV before coming to a stop, police said. Some of the tanker's contents, waste water, spilled during the wreck, Riley said. 

The driver of the Kia SUV and the tanker truck were taken to the hospital for medical treatment, police said. They were treated for minor injuries and released, Riley said. 

Police later charged the Audi's driver, Ann Bull, 59, of Williamsburg, with reckless driving in connection to the crash. 

There was some waste water that spilled from the tanker truck, police said. It was not hazardous, and was cleaned up by Williamsburg Fire Department, Riley said. It was not a large amount, he added. 

Police closed the intersection off early Tuesday morning, directing traffic around the busy intersection to surrounding streets. Traffic slowed on several routes near Bypass Road and the area of the crash.
