Truck Rollover Causes Oil Spill in Stratford

Crews were busy cleaning up a major mess this afternoon after an oil truck rolled over in Stratford.

Police said it happened around 12:15 p.m. at the intersection of Broadbridge and Second Hill Avenues.

No one was injured, but authorities said about 100 gallons of oil did go down a nearby drain. Fairfield Hazardous Waste team was called in.

Officials said 2,000 gallons of oil needed to be drained from the truck before they can bring it upright and remove it.

The road reopened a few hours later.
