UPDATE: Gas spill closes West End intersection

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - The intersection of Pump Road and Patterson Avenue in western Henrico County was closed this afternoon due to a gas spill at a nearby gas station.

The accident happened around noon. A contractor was called to come in and help with clean-up.  The scene was cleared around 2:30 and the closed section of Pump Road has reopened.

A tanker truck was filling a tank when a driver of a vehicle drove over the hose, spilling about 50 gallons of gas.

NBC12 has a crew at the scene and will have more on this story later in the day.
