RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – A fuel delivery truck rolled out of a South Richmond driveway and into a creek Thursday morning near Hickory and Cherokee Roads.

Richmond Fire and Haz-Mat crews built a dam to help contain a minor fuel leak, according to the Richmond Fire Department.

Most of the spill was contained, Richmond Fire Department spokesman Robbie Hagaman said.

The fuel truck rolled out of the driveway after it suffered a brake failure, he said.
