ADELANTO: A black Ford F-150 quarter ton pick up transporting over 100 gallons of gasoline in two external 55-gallon tanks, was involved in a traffic collision.
At least one of the tanks ruptured during the accident causing fuel to spill onto the roadway, eventually leading to a portion of highway-395 being shut down.
As of 7 p.m. the stretch of highway-395 between Seneca road and Palmdale road remained closed to south bound traffic. The back up is reported to go back for several miles.
A Hazmat crew has been requested to assist with the fuel spill clean up.
The collision occurred at the intersection of Highway-395 and Adelanto Market place just before 6:15 p.m. on Saturday. Both pick-up trucks sustained noticeable damage and the exact cause of the accident is unknown at this time.
