Tampa, Florida -- Tampa Police have reopened the area at Jefferson Street just north of East Jackson Street following a collision that caused a diesel fuel leak Tuesday morning.
Sources at the scene say it appears a vodka delivery truck and a car were involved in the accident, and that the car punctured one of the fuel tanks on the delivery truck causing a small amount of diesel fuel to leak onto the street.
A kiddie pool has been placed under the leak to prevent more of it from spilling onto the street. Authorities say about 60 gallons of fuel have spilled onto the street.
Authorities closed Jefferson Street from Whiting Street to Kennedy Blvd and Jackson Street from Jefferson to Pierce Street for a few hours while crews worked to clean up the spill.
Tampa Fire Rescue says one person was taken to an area hospital to be checked for a minor injury.
