PEACH BOTTOM, Pa. (WHTM) -

Route 272 in Lancaster County could be closed all day due to a fuel spill in Peach Bottom Township this morning, state police said. 

The road is closed between Soapstone Road and State Route 222 after a tanker truck carrying commercial grade diesel fuel hit an embankment and flipped on its side at 6:42 this morning. Approximately half of the truck's load spilled.

State Police said preliminary information suggests the crash may have been caused by a medical condition suffered by the driver.

The driver of the tractor trailer was taken to Lancaster General Hospital.

Two other cars were involved in the crash. Neither driver was injured.
