TOWN OF BURLINGTON – An empty XNG truck en route south from the company’s Little Falls plant went off Route 205 about two miles south of Route 80 at 8:20 a.m. today, according to county Emergency Services Director Art Klinger.

The driver was shook-up, but was able to tell emergency personnel arriving at the scene that the tanker was empty, Klinger said.

“There was no release of gas at any time,” XNG Vice President Matt Smith emphasized in an email received a few moments ago.
