Truck overturns, spills diesel fuel in suburban West Palm Beach

A truck rolled over and leaked diesel fuel in Central Palm Beach County Thursday afternoon.

A trucker was transporting soda machines when it ended up on its side about a mile west of I-95 on Southern Boulevard.

The driver says he was cut off and lost control of his rig.

Hazmat units were initially dispatched, but later canceled.

The truck ended up spilling about 5-to-10 gallons of fuel before the leak was stopped, according to Palm Beach County Fire Rescue.

The driver and the pet he was traveling with were not seriously injured.

The Congress Avenue ramp from Southern is closed due to the crash.
