Two trucks collided on the 500 block of Street Road just before noon today, on the 500 block of Street Road in Bensalem.  The accident was minor and no one was hurt. Unfortunately, on of the trucks struck the saddle tank of a tractor. This caused about 25 to 50 gallons of fuel to spill onto the street.  Traffic was diverted via Dunks Ferry Road.

Bensalem Fire and Rescue went in service to mitigate the spill. Penn dot was called due to the fact that it was a state road, but they did not put down sand, or il dry. That was done by a private company or the tow service.

This incident happened about 11:40 AM.The spill and everything was cleared before 1:00 PM
