>Tractor-trailer carrying tires flips in Lockport

LOCKPORT -- A tractor-trailer carrying tires from Catskill to a city recycling plant rolled over Tuesday morning within sight of its final stop on Ohio Street.

Keith C. Smith, 52, of South Cairo, a driver for Casings Inc., walked away from the wreck uninjured, but a section of the road was closed for several hours, and three telephone poles were damaged, said City of Lockport Fire Department Capt. Lou Farina.

Farina said Smith, heading north, was rounding a sharp curve at about 8:45 a.m. on Ohio Street, in front of Newfane Lumber, and felt his load shift, which caused the truck to flip over.

The Niagara County Health Department was called to assess damage caused by leaking hydraulic fuels, and absorbent pillows were used to soak up any leakage, Farina said. No diesel fuel was reported leaking, he said.
