Driver in Lexington spill cited

Mar 3, 2011 1:04:00 PM - thestate.com
The driver of a fuel tanker that overturned and blocked morning and evening rush traffic Feb. 22 at a major intersection in Lexington has been cited by police for driving too fast.

Gregory Mabeley, 49, of Aiken was issued a ticket for the spill of nearly 1,100 gallons of fuel, town police chief Terrence Green said today. The maximum fine in municipal court is nearly $82.

Investigators concluded Mabeley was traveling too fast in trying to turn left off U.S. 378 on to S.C. 6, en route to a delivery in Irmo, Green said.

The estimated speed of the tanker was 15 mph, but that was too quick for the load it carried, Green said.
