TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - The westbound side of FM 848 in the Bascom area is blocked due to diesel leaking from an 18-wheeler.

The driver of the 18-wheeler pulled off the road near the Bascom Cemetery Monday afternoon. The driver did not want to talk to KLTV’s Jeff Chavez.

The Chapel Hill Volunteer Fire Department is at the scene, and it looks like the leak is under control. The company that owns the truck is cleaning up the leak.

Traffic is moving normally despite the lane blockage.

Motorists driving in that area should exercise caution and expect delays.
