The big rig was a delivery truck for a lumber yard that was traveling on New Hope Rd. Just after 2:00 p.m. while making a left turn to go north on 8th St, a car ran a red light and crashed into the 18 wheeler’s fuel tank. The crash ruptured the tank and cause a large fuel spill at the intersection, spilling about 50 to 100 gallons of diesel fuel.

An article at the KNWA News website had details of the story:

“Police say a tractor-trailer was making a left turn from New Hope Road North onto Eighth Street when another car ran a red light and collided directly with the truck’s gas tank, which had just been filled at a nearby gas station.”

First responders arrived at the scene to contain the fuel leak and used absorbant material to contain the spill. The Rogers Fire Department said that there were no injuries.

Reports say that the truck had just been refueled nearby right before the accident so the tanks were pretty full.

The incident remains under investigation at this time.
