Police, fire respond to overturned diesel truck in southeast Calgary
Emergency crews were at the scene of an overturned semi-truck in Calgary’s East Shepard Industrial area Tuesday evening.
The truck hauling a tanker trailer with diesel rolled over at the intersection of 52 Street and 110 Avenue S.E. just after 5 p.m. Emergency crews closed traffic in all directions shortly after.
Calgary police said it was a diesel spill and fuel could be seen on the road.
