NORTH HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — A diesel spill in North Haven closed down exit and entrance ramps on I-91 northbound Friday.
A tanker truck owned by HI Stone out of Southbury tipped over, causing the saddle tanks to rupture just after noon in the area of I-91 northbound at Exit 9.
150 gallons of diesel fuel spilled, according to DEEP. The fuel release was contained without impacting any soil or nearby waterways.
DEEP said the tanker was carrying municipal liquid sewage waste, but none of the waste spilled. It was being off-loaded from the truck so the truck could be righted and removed from the scene.
Montowese Avenue was closed between Quinnipiac Avenue and Universal Drive but has since reopened.
Minor injuries were reported.
