Tanker crash causes fuel spill in Hales Corners
Two-thousand gallons of fuel spilled onto Highway 100 Tuesday morning after a crash involving a tanker near the Milwaukee/Hales Corners border.
This is by far the worst (spill) that I've had in my 26 years with the department,\" Deputy Chief Martin Freibergs with the Hales Corners Fire Department said.
Investigators on the scene tell CBS 58, the tanker was going southbound on Highway 100 when it was hit by another truck. The fuel spilled out near the intersection of Highway 100 and Janesville Road.
Hazmat crews arrived at the crash around 8:15 a.m. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources also responded due to concerns that the fuel is going into a nearby creek.
No one was hurt during the crash, but it did impact the morning commute.
