Sunrise Highway has been shut down after a home heating oil delivery truck lost control in the snow and rolled over onto the center median.
The accident happened just west of County Road 111 in the east bound lanes. The driver was not seriously injured but the truck was leaking oil. Suffolk Police Highway Patrol and Eastport Fire Department responded to the scene. The Town of Brookhaven Fire Marshal’s hazardous materials response team was called in and were attempting to stop the leak and remove any product that has already leaked. All during the times of the heaviest snow fall.
The remaining fuel will be off loaded into another vehicle and a heavy duty wrecker will upright the vehicle.
