Tractor-trailer accident spills 1000-gallons of diesel

Tractor-trailer accident causes diesel spill.

GORHAM, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- South St in Gorham is closed in the area of the Bernard P Rines Hwy due to a motor vehicle accident. Route 114 bypass between Narragansett St and South St is also closed at this time.

The Gorham Fire Chief says About 1-thousand gallons of the diesel fuel has leaked. But he says the compartment holding gasoline is contained -- saying the situation would have been much more serious if they were dealing with a gas leak. 

Officials say they do not know what caused the accident -- and the truck driver did not suffer any injuries.
