PHENIX CITY, Ala. (AP) - Crews have been cleaning up an estimated 3,500 to 7,000 gallons of gasoline after a semitrailer overturned in the front yard of a home in eastern Alabama.

Authorities say the tractor-trailer crashed and overturned outside a home on Summerville Road in Phenix City shortly after 4:30 p.m. Monday.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports (https://bit.ly/XxeDOI) that a hole the size of a garden hose was discovered spilling gasoline into the yard. Two smaller 4,500-gallon gasoline trucks were used to empty out the contents of the larger truck’s tank.

Authorities say the driver of the semi was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries. No one else was injured in the crash.
