Crews working to clean up spill after fuel truck is involved in crash
The scene has caused westbound I-70 to shut down just west of I-470
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - Crews are working to clean up fuel on the interstate after the truck transporting it was involved in a crash.
The crash happened shortly after 8 p.m. and has caused westbound I-70 to shut down just west of I-470.
The crash involved a semi and at least two other vehicles. Luckily, no one was injured.
However, the crash caused one of the semi’s 100-gallon fuel tanks to rupture. That has led to a fuel spill about a quarter-mile long.
Missouri Department of Transportation crews have brought sand out to try and dry out some of the pavement.
It may be until after 9:30 p.m. until this scene is cleared.
UPDATE: As of 10 p.m., the roadway remains closed.
