HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

An accident on Hardy Street left motorists at a near standstill around lunchtime Wednesday.

A car struck an 18 wheeler hauling gravel at the intersection of Weathersby Road and Hardy Street.

The accident ruptured the fuel tank of the large truck, which caused the diesel fuel to spill out onto the roadway.

Emergency management officials quickly had crews on the scene to clean up the fuel using microbial formula called Micro-Blaze, which is commonly used in emergency spills.

MDEQ arrived on the scene later to confirm that no further cleanup would be necessary.

Officials believed the spill to be less than 50 gallons.

No injuries were reported in the accident.
