UPDATED: Tractor-trailer on its side on Route 63, Pavilion

post by Howard B. Owens in accident, Pavilion

A tractor-trailer has reportedly rolled onto its side on Route 63, near River Road, in Pavilion.

Pavilion fire is dispatched.

UPDATE 7:55 a.m.: A firefighter on location reports extrication will be needed.

UPDATE 8:08 a.m.: A diesel tank has ruptured. A large amount of fuel has spilled. Emergency Services requested to the scene. Pads and booms requested.

UPDATE 11:45 a.m.: One lane on northbound Route 63 remains closed. It's going to be awhile before it reopens. This morning, authorities were waiting for NYS DOT to come out and remove the guard rail on the east shoulder. The truck can't be pulled forward because of a large cement culvert outlet directly ahead of it. The DEC wanted the remaining diesel fuel from both tanks offloaded first, too. A good deal of fuel spilled down the drainage ditch that runs along the side of the road. Firefighters seem to have stopped the drainage about 100 yards south of the accident scene. The driver apparently fell asleep. He was transported by Mercy EMS to UMMC for treatment of minor injuries.

UPDATE 12:48 p.m.: Route 63 is closed in both directions pending removal of the disabled tractor-trailer.

UPDATE 4:01 p.m.: The tractor-trailer has been removed. The road should reopen shortly.
