Incident Type: Gas Spill 

BYRON TWP, Kent County:  Earlier this morning, at the Sunoco gas station on S. Division, a 22 year old Dorr resident leaving the gas pump struck the nozzle of a fuel delivery truck causing damage to the nozzle. It is estimated that more than 100 gallons of fuel leaked onto the concrete. The spill was contained, did not reach drains, and there is no concern of ground contamination at this time. Van Manen Oil, the supplier, quickly responded and cleaned up the spill. The at fault driver was cited for careless driving and there were no reported injuries.
