Tractor-trailer loses part of drive shaft on Eastbound Thruway, spills diesel

post by Billie Owens in accidents, east pembroke, indian fall, pembroke

A tractor-trailer is leaking a significant amount of diesel fuel at the travel service center in Pembroke, located at 8319 Indian Falls Road.

Also, a portion of the disabled vehicle's drive shaft fell off in an eastbound lane of the Thruway near mile marker 398.7. State Troopers are on scene and it has been removed, but three vehicles are damaged after striking it. There's fuel covering the roadway in that area "as far as I can see" says an officer at the scene.

The East Pembroke fire chief is asking for absorbant material and foam for the fuel spill at the travel center.

"We're going to need a lot of speed dry. It's pouring out like a water hose."

There's a four-inch rip in the truck's gas tank and is gushing so much it's covering the parking lot and is now pouring into the drainage and sewer system.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation is being called out, along with the county Emergency Management Department's Haz-Mat team, and the state Department of Transportation.

Firefighters report being all out of speedy dry at the East Pembroke Fire Hall and will call on the Town of Batavia Fire Department for some. Pembroke and Indian Falls fire departments are called to the travel center to provide mutual aid.

About 120 gallons of fuel has leaked and it's still gushing. The tank was full and now it's down to an eighth of a tank. At least a truckload of absorbant materials is needed. A boom is going to be used to try and prevent any more flow from going into the drainage system.

UPDATE 4:15 p.m.: When asked how the spill was, a firefighter said "It's come down a lot -- either that or she's almost out of fuel."

UPDATE 5:19 p.m.: The East Pembroke chief says fire crews cleaned up as much of the spill as they could and the remainder of it will be handled by the Thruway Authority and the DEC. Fire crews which responded are back in service, including Corfu, which was standing by in its quarters.

Rollover accident on Creek Road, driver trapped, Mercy Flight responding

post by Billie Owens in batavia, accidents

A two vehicle rollover accident is reported in the area of 9084 Creek Road. Town of Batavia Fire Department and Mercy medics are responding. One vehicle is in a field on its roof and its driver is a female who has an arm injury and is trapped inside. Mercy Flight is called to the scene. The location is between Dorman Road and Lehigh Avenue.

UPDATE 7:05 p.m.: Mercy Flight has landed. A black Labrador retriever was inside the vehicle that rolled over and subsequently ran away, says a responder, so if calls come in about a black lab running loose in the area it could very well be that dog.

UPDATE 8:07 p.m.: The Town of Batavia assignment is back in service. It appeared to those on scene that Mercy Flight headed to Strong Memorial Hospital. The driver of the other vehicle was apparently not injured.
