DALLAS -- A downtown collision tied up traffic near the Omni Dallas Hotel on Saturday evening.
A small black sedan and an 18-wheeler tangled at the corner of Lamar and Young streets. No one was seriously injured, but the impact punctured a diesel tank on the truck, spilling slippery fuel down Lamar Street.
The Dallas Fire-Rescue hazardous materials team used power equipment to soak up and dispose of the fuel.
Police, meanwhile, directed traffic through the hotel's entranceway to sidestep the tainted pavement.
