FLEMING | Fleming, Owasco and Auburn firefighters responded after a truck overturned and began leaking fluid on Route 38 in Fleming.
The accident happened around 4 p.m. in the traffic circle in front of the Sunoco gas station, where Route 38 intersects with White Bridge Road and Sand Beach Road. A shredding truck overturned, spilling scrap metal onto the side of the road.
Stephen Donnelly, a spokesman for Upstate Shredding, said the truck's trailer was leased to an independent company and not operated by Upstate Shredding or Weitsman Recycling.
Fleming Fire Department Assistant Chief William Breck said it appeared speed was a factor in the accident.
About 50 gallons of hydraulic fluid also spilled when the truck overturned, but was contained and cleaned up by firefighters at the scene. Breck said no one was injured in the crash.
