Fuel spill slows morning commute on I-87Posted: Updated:
A tractor–trailer leaking fuel caused one lane of I-87 in Yonkers to shut down during the morning commute today
Officials say the truck pulled over north of exit 5 near the Cross County Parkway around 5 a.m. The driver isn’t sure how the puncture that caused the fuel leak happened.
One lane of the Thruway was shut down as crews cleaned up the spill.
The truck was hauled away around 7 a.m., and the lane was reopened around 8 a.m.
Officials think none of the spill was released into the environment.
