The tanker was punctured in several places during the accident causing the 9,000 gallons of fuel onboard to spill.

Both the northbound and southbound lanes were closed to traffic as firefighters Pompano Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue, and Margate used foam to clean up the large fuel spill.

For hours vehicles were forced to exit at Commercial Boulevard and Cypress Creek Road until clean up was completed and the truck was removed.

Drivers were advised to stay away from the area.
