Eastover, SC (WLTX) -- A tractor trailer wrecked just before noon on the 10,400 block of Garners Ferry Road in Richland County Friday.

According to Columbia - Richland County Fire spokesman Brick Lewis, the 18-wheeler crashed into the ditch at 10,441 Garners Ferry Road, puncturing one of the saddle fuel tanks under the side of the truck.

Lewis says the truck has leaked an estimated 20 gallons of diesel fuel, and DHEC has been called to the scene. Officials are trying to place a dyke to stop the leak and prevent the spread of fuel.

One westbound lane of Garners Ferry Road has been closed for emergency vehicles.
