Route 59 closed in Spring Valley after fuel spill
A Rockland County hazmat team was on the scene of a fuel spill in Spring Valley that closed Route 59 in both directions late Tuesday evening, News12 reported.
The diesel spill at 308 W. Route 59 occurred after a tractor trailer hit a utility pole and fire hydrant, Spring Valley Fire Chief Robert Johnson Jr. told News12. The big rig came to rest on the front lawn of a nearby home.
Spring Valley fire and police officials responded to the spill, which was reported about 8:15 p.m. The driver of the tractor trailer was not seriously injured, Johnson said.
Route 59 was closed between Summit and South Cole avenues.
It was not immediately known what caused the crash or how long it would take to reopen the roadway.
