Fuel spill ties up traffic, 34th & Univeristy

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A fuel spill tied up traffic at 34th and University for several hours Sunday.  Emergency crews including firefighters and police responded at about 9:00 AM to the 7-Eleven Convenience store for the fuel spill. 

The fire department cleaned up 30 gallons of fuel.  Fuel trucks like the one in question can carry up to 5,000 gallons.

KCBD NewsChannel 11 was not able to confirm reports of evacuations.  One police officer was taken from the scene by EMS but police were not able to say to what extent the officer was injured.  Police also did not say what caused a truck at that intersection to spill fuel.  By 2:00 PM, traffic was back to normal.
