UPDATE: Fluid spill cleaned up on Hwy 259

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - A fluid spill created a slippery situation Longview this morning.

HAZMAT crews along with Longview PD and the fire department worked to clean up a hydraulic fluid spill on Hwy 259 between I-20 and Neiman Marcus Pkwy.

A dump truck from Longview Asphalt Inc. leaked all of its hydraulic fuel out onto the roadway after the driver left the power take-off engaged and the hydraulic fluid hose broke.  The plant operator tells KLTV the driver was unaware of the leak.

Crews have cleaned up the spill and the northbound outside lane of Hwy 259 has been reopened.
