A busy Kitchener street has been closed in one direction after a truck's bin tipped on Tuesday afternoon.
Police say it happened around 12:35 p.m. near the roundabout at Bleams Road and Manitou Drive.
The bin reportedly severed part of the vehicle's fuel tank, causing a diesel spill.
Officers aren't sure how much fuel has spilled yet, but the Region of Waterloo's Environmental Enforcement Services were on site.
Northbound traffic on Manitou was being diverted between Wabanaki Drive and the roundabout. Traffic headed in the other direction wasn't affected.
Police haven't speculated on what caused the crash but police say that charges are pending.
There's no timeline yet for how long it will take to clean up after the crash.
On scene at Bleams & Manitou where a truck lost its load in the roundabout. It appears there was also a fuel leak. Firefighters & @CityKitchener contained what they could but some did reach stormwater drains. Ground Force Environmental has taken over cleanup. pic.twitter.com/4ri8Dpn2xg— Vidman ~ Dan Lauckner (@vidman) December 10, 2019
