Trucking Accident Leads to Large Gasoline Spill on Stevenson Expressway

A trucking driver has been cited for spilling 65 gallons of gasoline onto the Stevenson Expressway on November 27th. The trucking accident occurred near Pulaski Road and the Expressway was shut down in both directions for several hours so crews could clean up the spill. According to Chicago Sun Times, the spill was caused by a trucking accident in which the truck carrying the gasoline collided with a passenger car. The reason that the spill was so dangerous and lanes had to be shut down until all the gasoline was cleaned up was because gasoline is extremely flammable. The truck driver was issued citations for improper overtaking on the right and for disobeying a traffic control device.
