We were contacted to respond to Lampeter Road and Route 462 in West Lampeter Township for a commercial motor vehicle accident involving a garbage truck and a tractor trailer with a major fuel spill.
Upon arrival, the incident had been upgraded to a hazmat incident due to the cargo in the trailer leaking and posing a possible inhalation hazard.
Our team along with NR&SR worked to contain and clean up the fuel that was spilled on the roadway and prevent it from traveling any further in the storm drain system then it already had.
We waited several hours before being given the go ahead to move the vehicles due to the possible inhalation hazards.
Once given the go ahead to begin moving the vehicles, our team worked to get the roadway re-opened as quickly as possible.
