A pickup truck and semi were involved in a crash Thursday morning in South Bay, causing about 50 gallons of fuel to spill onto the road. 

Chopper 5 flew over the scene just before 7 a.m. and spotted a black truck and tractor-trailer that crashed at the intersection of U.S. 27 and Palm Beach Road.


Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Capt. Albert Borroto said the pickup truck hit the side of the semi and punctured the tractor-trailer's saddle tank, cause the fuel leak.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said the wreck has closed northbound U.S. 27 while crews investigate and cleanup the fuel.

Borroto said no one was hurt in the crash.
