Saturday, July 19, 2008

Traffic on Interstate 55 southbound at the Cape Girardeau Airport exit slowed Friday afternoon after a vehicle's tire blew out and gas leaked from the vehicle's tank, according to the Cape Girardeau Police Department. The Cape Girardeau Fire Department was sent down to the scene to clean up the fuel spill, and the police department sent an officer to help with traffic control.

No lanes were closed, but traffic was slowed down. A tow-truck was required to remove the vehicle from the scene.
