FAYETTEVILLE - Crews cleaned up a diesel fuel spill after an SUV collided with a tractor trailer in Fayette County.

Around 7 a.m. Tuesday, an SUV hit the side of a tractor trailer on Route 19 at the intersection of the Fayette Town Center near Fayetteville, according to Captain Dennis Milam with the Fayetteville Fire Department. Milam said the crash busted the diesel tanks on the driver's side of the trailer, so crews worked to halt the flow of the fuel from the 210 gallon tanks.

Ambulances were on standby but no injuries were reported. Fayetteville Police and Fire Departments, State Police and the Department of Transportation cleared the scene.
