An environmental cleanup crew is soaking up the remains of a 200-gallon diesel spill that happened in Bledsoe County when a tractor-trailer flipped over on a hairpin curve.

Bledsoe County 911 dispatcher Patricia Edmons said the call came in about 11:50 a.m. CST Tuesday and emergency management and rescue crews were sent to the scene.

The accident was turned over to state troopers and McWilliams Road was closed while crews righted the tractor-trailer, she said.
