A crash between a car and a tractor-trailer slowed traffic and caused a small fuel leak, but luckily no one was injured.

The crash took place around 9 a.m. Thursday at the intersection of Route 6 and Union Valley Road in Mahopac, according to EMS officials.

Numerous departments responded to the crash, including Mahopac Fire, EMS and Fire Police along with multiple units from the Carmel Police.

Arriving units found the vehicles off the main road allowing traffic to proceed at a reduced speed. Asst. Chief Andy Roberto assumed Incident command and found that the control valves on the tanker was damaged, causing a minor spill.

The fire crews ascertained that the lines to the damaged valves were closed and proceeded to keep the fluid to a small area with absorbent material.
