VANDALIA, Ohio (WDTN) – Hazmat crews and the EPA were called to the Flying J truck stop on Northwoods Boulevard just after 12:30 Friday morning.

Police say a truck backed into a parked tanker that was off-loading diesel fuel at that station.

The station was closed for several hours while crews worked to clean up the mess.

The clean-up operation wrapped up just after 5:00 Friday morning and crews left the scene. The truck stop was closed while clean up crews did their work. The store is now open again.
