TRAFFIC ALERT: Authorities work to clear wreck, chemical spill in intersection
At about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, emergency units from the Marco Island Fire-Rescue and Police departments were dispatched to a two-car accident at the intersection of San Marco Road and North Barfield Drive for a reported chemical spill.
Upon arrival, they found a Hulett Pest Control vehicle and a service vehicle for Islander Pool and Patio blocking the intersection. The service vehicle for the pool service company was on its roof and chemicals had been spilled in the intersection, first responders said.
The fire-rescue crews immediately instituted hazardous materials protocols for dealing with the chemical spill and EMS personnel were treating the two drivers, who did not appear to have serious injuries, authorities said.
Motorists are requested to find alternate routes while emergency crews clear the intersection.
