San Diego, CA—A two-vehicle collision left one personal injured, and spilled 125 gallons of diesel fuel onto the roadway and in into storm drains. The motor vehicle collision happened on Thursday, September 24, 2009, around 1:30 p.m., at the intersection of Mission Avenue and El Camino Real in Oceanside, as reported by the San Diego Union-Tribune.
According to police reports, a Nissan pickup truck was traveling eastbound on Mission Avenue when the driver ran a red light and slammed into the right side of a Mayflower moving truck, which was passing through the intersection. The impact of the crash hit the moving vans fuel cylinder, which caused diesel fuel to spill onto the roadway, and into nearby storm drains. The unidentified driver of the pickup truck was rushed to a local hospital by area emergency medical services (EMS) crews for treatment of a potential traumatic brain injury (TBI). The driver of the Mayflower moving van was reportedly uninjured in the wreck. It took hazmat and public works crews several hours to mop up the fuel on the roadway, and pump the fuel out of the storm drains. Drugs and alcohol do not appear to have been a factor in the crash. Police officials are reportedly conducting a full investigation into the two-vehicle wreck.
