SAN DIEGO — Hazardous materials crews are working to clean up roughly 40 to 60 gallons of ethanol that spilled out of that overturned tanker truck in front of SDCCU Stadium in Mission Valley, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
Traffic lanes are closed around the intersection of San Diego Mission Road and Mission Village Drive, police report.
According to Batallion Chief Robert Logan, there are a little over 6,000 gallons of ethanol fuel in the overturned tanker.
Some of the leaked ethanol has spilled in to the storm drain. Crews were able to secure the leak by placing a clamp on the truck's dome.
According to Chief Logan, sump trucks were called in to vacuum the fuel out of the truck before it is set upright.
The driver of the truck was taken to an area hospital with unknown injuries.
Hazmat crews are expected to remain on the scene for five to seven hours.
