Fuel Spill Closes Road

A fuel spill closed a major road in Tyler for almost ten hours today. Early this morning, HAZMAT crews were called to Broadway and Gentry Parkway in Tyler, where an 18 wheeler was leaking jet fuel.

The spill shut down West bound traffic on Gentry from Highway 271 to Broadway.

Officials say the truck's mud flap hit the pluming on the truck's tank, causing the leak. The road is now open.
