  • 0

Traffic on southbound U.S. 52 was flowing freely again by 2 p.m. at the Moore-RJR Drive exit near King after a truck hauling cars had a leak. The truck leaked 80 gallons of diesel fuel on the right shoulder of the road, King Fire Department Chief Steven Roberson said.

Roberson said the spill occurred around 11:15 a.m. A crew arrived around 12:15 p.m. to deal with the fuel spill, which had been contained by the fire department on the shoulder of the highway.

Roberson said the truck’s tank apparently developed the leak in its reserve tank without there being any wreck on U.S. 52.

No injuries were reported.

“I just lost fuel. That’s all,” said truck driver Luis Alvarado.
