MIDLAND COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

Firefighters were called out to a rollover accident that caused a fuel spill in Midland County on Friday. 

DPS Troopers tell us a truck heading southbound on West County Road 60 crashed with a truck tractor tanker when the truck driver failed to yield at the intersection with Tom Craddick Highway.

The 18-wheeler tanker was carrying ethanol and was spilled on the road.

Firefighters were seen hosing down the truck but officials say the area will have to be cleaned by a HAZMAT team. With temperatures in the 90's today, officials said a fire due to the spill is possible but the probability is low.
