18-wheeler overturned on Lakeshore Parkway

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — An 18-wheeler is overturned at the intersection of Lakeshore Parkway and Frankfurt Circle, and appears to be leaking some sort of fluid in addition to a gravelly substance that spilled from its trailer.

There are emergency responders on the scene, and at the time of this article’s publication, hazmat and decontamination crews were there as well.

Police are directing traffic around the truck, and it appears that at least two other vehicles were damaged at the time of the wreck.

The road is closed to through traffic as the situation is resolved.
