Fuel Spill in NW Lincoln UPDATE – KWIK SHOP REOPENED

Fuel Spill in NW Lincoln UPDATE – KWIK SHOP REOPENED

Approximately 22 gallons of gasoline was spilled in the parking lot of the Kwik Shop, located at 14th Adams this morning. The spill happened while a fuel delivery vehicle was connected to the underground tanks and delivering gasoline to them via a high-volume delivery hose.

A 26 year old man reported he went into the store to prepay and noticed the fueling truck hoses were behind his vehicle.  He pumped gas and thought he had enough room to back up and accidentally collided with the valves on the ground.  When he pulled forwarded, the valves broke, causing fuel to flow out onto the ground.  No citations are expected.

Kwik Shop has reopened.
