GWINNETT CO – (WAOK) Hazmat crews are on the scene of a tanker crash, that is possibly leaking fuel into a nearby creek, in Gwinnett county. Police say Highway 29, between Circle Road and Highway 316 had to be shutdown, when they say a Jeep veered into the path of the truck, causing it to overturn. There is concern that the fuel is leaking into a creek, and posing concern for wildlife. Two people were reportedly injured and taken to Gwinnett Medical Center for treatment. A Gwinnett County Emergency Services spokesperson, says the tanker was carrying more than 8000 gallons of fuel, and a fourth of it, may have spilled into the ground and could be contaminating a nearby creek.
