TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The Tyler Fire Department has been on the scene for most of Tuesday of an overturned milk truck on the 900 Block of Palace and West Erwin, and a crew from Southland Environmental Hazmat Response team joined them in cleaning up spilled milk, a large task which is now finished.

Witnesses said that they heard a boom as the truck, headed south bound on Palace, detached from the trailer early Tuesday.
 
Palace was shut down between Erwin and the railroad tracks while an additional Borden 18-wheeler came  to the scene to load the milk that was able to be saved.

Milk containers were damaged during the accident and milk could be seen running along the curb that edges the roadway. The hazmat crew arrived on scene to stop the milk from running into the storm drain, which Tyler police said is not good for the water supply.

The truck was on its way from Dallas to a distribution center in Tyler.
