CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A crash involving a tractor trailer hauling ethanol is causing issues for motorists in west Charlotte.

Authorities responded to the crash in an industrial area in west Charlotte in the 6700 block of CSX Way, near Toddville Road.

The Charlotte Fire Department says the tanker was hauling ethanol, and a small leak has been detected. HazMat crews are working to off-load the product.

Although the scene is off the road, authorities say motorists should avoid the area to make way for emergency vehicles.

There are no evacuations in the area, and there’s no word just yet on injuries.
