Fuel leak shuts down U.S. 231 near Brundidge

All four lanes of U.S. 231 south of Brundidge are shut down Thursday morning as emergency crews work to  clean up a jet fuel leak.

Trooper Kevin Cook with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency said an 18-wheeler transporting jet fuel was involved in single-vehicle crash around 7:30 a.m. Thursday. “No one was injured, but there was a fuel leak,” he said.

“We’ve closed all four lanes of U.S. 231 just south of Brundidge and are rerouting traffic through Alabama 125,” Cook said. “The Department of Transportation is on the way there now and we expect the roads to remain closed two to four hours.”

Cook said the accident remains under investigation. No one was injured in the incident.
