Gas truck hits pole in Largo

LARGO — A tanker truck delivering gas to a Shell station on Walsingham road Wednesday afternoon struck a pole, causing a leak that has since been brought under control, authorities said.

The driver of the truck, 52-year-old Richard E. Davis, of Riverview, was not injured in the accident, which happened around 4:20 p.m. at the station at 13098 Walsingham.

Though the fuel leak has stopped, a hazardous materials team was called to the scene to assist.

The fuel will be unloaded from the truck and put into storage tanks at the gas station, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
