MVA - Clinton Avenue/Tompkins Avenue
Just after 7am, FD, PD, and EMS were called to the intersection of Clinton Avenue at Tompkins Avenue for an overturned tractor trailer with possible entrapment. Thankfully, the driver was able to self-extricate prior to FD arrival. The driver then made the FD aware that the truck was hauling a chemical, which was leaking due to the shifted load. A special call was made to the Middlesex County Hazmat team to mitigate and clean up the spilled chemical. All units cleared around 9:50pm that night. Special thanks to Plainfield, Edison, Colonia, Iselin, and East Brunswick for providing assistance at the scene and cover the town at this extended operation.
