Updated: Collision Causes Fuel Leak on Round Swamp Road

A oil truck collided with a van on the road this afternoon.

A collision between a van and an oil truck resulted in an injury and a fuel leak on Round Swamp Road in Farmingdale Wednesday afternoon.

Around 3:20 p.m. the Village of Farmingdale Fire Department responded to the collision at the intersection of Bethpage Road and Round Swamp Road. A van and an oil truck collided rupturing the oil truck's saddle fuel tank and injuring the driver of the van.

Firefighters used speedy dry to contain the estimated 30-gallon spill of diesel fuel before it contaminated the storm drains.

The driver of the van was transported to NUMC by a Nassau County Police ambulance and the Nassau County Hazardous Materials unit was called to the scene to stop the leaking tank.

Cars traveling from Quaker Meeting House Road can't turn onto Round Swamp Road and instead are being directed toward Bethpage Road or Thomas Powell Blvd.
