CHESAPEAKE -- Crews in Chesapeake are cleaning up about 100 gallons of diesel fuel that spilled when tanks on a trailer trailer ruptured Tuesday morning.

 

Just after 9 a.m., a trailer apparently disconnected from a pickup truck and slammed into a trailer trailer at Atlantic Ave. and Narrows Street in South Norfolk, said Capt. Scott Saunders with the Chesapeake Fire Department.

Capt. Saunders added that some of the fuel went into a storm drain.

One southbound lane of Atlantic is closed for the cleanup and police are directing traffic in the area.

No one was hurt.
