MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Fire officials say a box truck crashed in Manchester, spilling fuel into the Merrimack River.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1QtDCH4 ) it happened on Wednesday afternoon. The truck was headed south on Interstate 293 near exit 6 when the driver lost control, drove over the median and guardrail and ruptured his tank.

Fire District Chief Jim Michael says fuel from the truck poured into a drain that goes directly to the river. He says crews recovered all the fuel on the bridge.

The city of Manchester and state environmental officials are investigating.
