ALLENHURST, Ga. (WSAV) — A two-vehicle accident near Dunlevie and Kent roads has shut down portions of traffic on Highway 84.
Two trucks, one tanker and one tractor-trailer, were involved in the accident around 11:30 a.m.
All lanes of traffic were closed for a few hours but westbound lanes have opened.
Delays are still expected and drivers are asked to avoid the area.
According to Georgia State Patrol, the tractor-trailer was following too closely and hit the tanker.
As a result, the tractor-trailer rolled over and several hundred gallons of turpentine from the tanker spilled on the road.
Authorities have closed some access to the highway over concern about the flammability of the turpentine.
Liberty County Emergency Management has put a shelter in place advisory in effect. Anyone living within a one-mile radius of the accident should stay in their home or evacuate if needed.
Law enforcement officials will be at all intersection to assist anyone wishing to leave the area.
No injuries were reported. The road is expected to be closed for several more hours.
