PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — Palm Beach County deputies and an emergency response team are cleaning up an oil spill that's causing road closures in suburban Boca Raton on Friday.

It's unfolding at Military Trail and SW 18th Street.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says a clear substance spilled onto the road, which forced the westbound lanes of SW 18th Street to close.

Royal Petroleum is on scene to help clean up the mess. A crew member believes a truck spilled oil when it made a sharp turn.
