LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One man is dead after a car accident in Breckinridge County caused a serious gas spill.
Police say Justin Glisson was driving on US 60 near Hardinsburg Saturday morning when he crossed the center line and hit a gas tanker. Glisson was pronounced dead at the scene, and his sister, was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The tanker rolled over and leaked 4,000 gallons of gas. Officials say crews will be on the scene cleaning up the spill for a few days, and the intersection near US 60 will be closed during that time.
Police say the driver of the tanker was hurt, but is expected to be OK.
