Overturned gravel truck cleans up own mess

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The hazardous material crew was called to a wreck in Lubbock Monday morning after a gravel truck overturned on East 50th Street and Loop 289, however, the cleanup was not as big as it could have been.

The team was called out because fuel was leaking from the truck's fuel tanks. The gravel that the truck was hauling spilled out of the truck and absorbed the fuel.

There were no injuries reported in the accident and the debris from the wreck has been cleaned up.
