A section of 72nd Street in Ladner will remain closed until sometime this evening as environmental and hazmat crews remaining on the scene of a truck accident early Friday morning.

What's believed to be a fuel delivery truck, capsized in an east side ditch of 72nd Street between Churchill Street and Ladner Trunk Road, near the North 40 dog park. An excavator was brought in to assist in digging out the back end of the truck.

The condition of the driver was unknown.

Traffic needing to access that area is being diverted to 80th Street via Churchill.
