Another tractor trailer mishap in Niagara had fuel spilling on a local highway.
OPP remain on the scene of another tractor trailer accident in the Niagara region.
At around eight o'clock this morning on the 4-0-6 south at Westchester in St. Catharines, a truck jack knifed and hit a guard rail.
Ministry of Transportation officials say diesel fuel was leaking onto the pavement.
According to the MTO the right southbound lane on the 4-0-6 is out of service and will remain closed for an extended period of time.
No word yet on any injuries to the truck driver.
Earlier this week a tanker truck flipped in the Gilmour road area of Fort Erie spilling thousands of litres of diesel fuel.
The fuel got into nearby storm drains but a beaver dam prevented the fuel from reaching the Niagara River.
