Viewfinder: Hazmat Unit Repairs Fuel Leak

A collision between a van and oil truck on Round Swamp Road caused the leak Wednesday.

A van and an oil truck collided at around around 3:20 p.m. yesterday at the intersection of Bethpage Road and Round Swamp Road, which ruptured the oil truck's saddle fuel tank and injured the driver of the van.

Village of Farmingdale firefighters used speedy dry to contain the estimated 30-gallon spill of diesel fuel before it contaminated the storm drains and the Nassau County Hazardous Materials unit was also  called to the scene to stop the leaking tank.
