Truck accident closes stretch of Keele Street near York U

A tractor trailer accident and associated fuel spill are together expected to leave a stretch of Keele Street closed near York University for the rest of the afternoon.

Toronto police say Keele Street is likely to be closed between The Pond Road and the Murray Ross Parkway for between four and five hours.

Firefighters say that a tractor trailer drove onto a median and fuel has begun leaking.

They say that some oil has gone into the sewers. Both the city and the Ministry of Environment have been notified.
