Semi truck catches on fire, leaks diesel fuel onto Texoma highway

Posted:

GRAYSON COUNTY, TX – DPS Troopers and a hazmat crew worked to clean up a diesel fuel leak on a major Texoma highway.

Fire crews in Sherman say part of Highway 82 was shut down Tuesday night after a semi truck caught on fire and started leaking fuel.

It happened around 8 p.m. in between Bells and Sherman, just past Bethany Road.

They say the driver had an electrical issue causing the cab to catch on fire. The driver pulled over to try and put it out, but the flames spread. When crews arrived the cab and the trailer were engulfed in flames.

The driver wasn't hurt.
