Tanker truck overturns, prompting street closures and hazmat response
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
Police on Wednesday shut the area of Panama Lane and South Union Avenue off to traffic after a tanker truck overturned and started leaking a light crude oil.
A hazmat crew also responded.
A witness said the truck crashed while trying to make a left turn.
There was a shelter-in-place order, and crews siphoned the leaking substance and tried to keep it out of storm drains.
The driver wasn't injured in the crash.
