Corpus Christi Police Officers were investigating a single car crash in the 12900 block of Redbird Lane and called for a wrecker to pick up the wrecked vehicle.

When the wrecker driver arrived, he was maneuvering his truck into a better position to pick up the crashed vehicle when he drove up and onto the curb. This punctured the bottom of his left fuel tank causing a spill.

CCFD responded to put down some absorbent material to help contain the fuel spill. The fire department also contacted Miller Environmental Company to come pick up the absorbent material off the road sometime early this morning.

The right lane on the access road will remain closed until the road is cleaned up. Traffic can still proceed on the left lane.
