Is there any truth to the rumor that oneill turned his words into grease and spilled out his liberal agenda?

stonecold - I'm GLAD you are such an expert on everything around the Glendale Extension area. But I CAN tell you that if they is a facility just over a half mile from where they wrecked that might very well use their grease trap cleaning service. IF you are so concerned about why this particular vehicle was on this particular road, maybe you could call the company and find out for us.

I found the message on the church sign a bit appropriate.

roksmith - there is NO REASON for a semi of used cooking oil to be on Glendale Road. It is NOT a designated truck route and not even a shortcut to the interstate if they were heading to Zanesville.

That kind of oil really won't do much of anything it breaks down pretty fast.I'm sure a lot of Animals have been eating at it already.

Maybe the driver got lost.. parts of that road could get a bit nasty for a rig that size..and I guess it did.

No cover-up here folks. The article stated they were DAR PRO Solutions. 5 seconds on google and you know that they collect used cooking oil and grease from restaurants and process it into fuel. Three collection locations in Ohio. They were probably headed back towards Zanesville.

Why must everyone make something out of nothing. Who gives a darn where it is going this isn't an investigation it is just a story about a truck spilling oil.

Great big gobs of greasy grimey gopher guts. Dont know about hippie scavengers, bu there are a couple of businesses on the eastern shore that have deals with local restaurants, and they use the best cleanest oil to run in their smaller diesel powered fleet trucks. They smell like stir fry, or yuck, crab cakes, when I used to follow them.

Where in the heck was this used cooking oil being transported to that had this truck traveling Glendale Road? There is no industry out that way, only farmland.

This is the stuff a lot of hippie scavengers go and steal from restaurants to run their converted diesel vehicles on. I guess now this is contaminated by Earth instead of the other way around.
