DEVELOPING: Courthouse Truck Crash Leads to Fuel Spill

A delivery truck crash in Courthouse led to a small fuel spill affecting county waterways as far away as Roosevelt Island.

The accident happened around noon today along the 2100 block of 14th Street N., according to the county fire department. No one was hurt in the crash.

The crash caused some fuel to spill out of the truck, and though county firefighters initially believed none of it made into the sewer system, crews have since been dispatched to Roosevelt Island to try and contain it.

Workers there detected “fuel odor and minor fuel sheen” and are currently working with other first responders to keep the fuel out of the water there.
