    Default Tanker Overturns...Pinellas County Florida

    Clearwater Florida

    An early morning accident in Clearwater shut down US 19. This is the major North/South travel route and its closure snarled rush hour traffic. The accident happened at 19 and Gulf to Bay (Rt 60) which is a major east/west route.

    A DOT 307 full of diesel fuel flipped over as it used an off ramp and spill thousands of gallons of fuel, some of which found its way into strom drains.

    Businesses were closed as well as the highway and as of 1 P.M. the area was still a huge mess.

    Clearwater Fire Department units assisted by other Pinellas County Units, Pinellas County Emergency Management, and the Pinellas County Hazardous Materials Team continued to work to mitigate the incident.
