A propane tanker truck overturned Tuesday morning in front of the Tilt’n Diner, causing traffic delays in the area for hours but no injuries.

Part of Route 3 near the Exit 20 off-ramp to The Tanger Outlets was closed, and traffic was rerouted around the area, according to the state’s Department of Transportation.

First responders told WMUR the 30,000-gallon tank was full and that it would take several hours to offload the gas. The driver was not injured.

The Tilt’n Diner was evacuated as a safety precaution and later closed for the day.
