On Saturday, March 5, at approximately 5:15 am, officers responded to the Speedway gas station on Route 31 for a report of a diesel fuel spill. Upon arrival, officers met with members of the Annandale Hose Company, who had already alerted the Health Department and the Hunterdon County Hazardous Materials team that fuel had spilled into a nearby drain. Tractor-trailer driver Jose Santos of Newark advised that he put the fuel nozzle into one of his truck’s tanks to begin fueling. When he returned, he observed that the nozzle was on the ground and that approximately twenty (20) gallons of fuel had spilled.
