The arrest was made on charges of damaging state properties and funds, driving a public vehicle with a third class license, and other violations of the traffic law.

Traffic Department officers sealed the roads leading to the Sports City roundabout, putting in place a number of traffic diversions until the accident was dealt with and the tank was eventually cleared from the area.

Waste water leaked from the tank; the Greater Amman Municipality used water tanks to clean up the area.

An electricity pole also fell and was damaged under the bridge during the accident.
