A truck carrying 24,000 litres of gasoline and diesel tipped over on route 432 on Saturday night, and spilled much of its contents. Environmental officials called-in a private spill response team to plug the main leak from the truck around 9:00 a.m. Sunday morning, eight hours after the tanker had already spilled thousands of litres of its load.
