GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - One person was hospitalized when a semi-truck and a car crashed in Glenn County.

The crash left a fuel leak on County Road 16 and County Road V V, just west of Hamilton city.

Officers said they got a call around 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 31. CHP said the driver of a grey Honda was going west on 16 while the semi-truck was going north on a side road.

When the two vehicles came at the intersection, the Honda went too fast and couldn't stop resulting in hitting the truck.

Action News Now spoke with a fire captain about the fuel leak left behind.

"There is a fuel leak," Rodriguez said. "We are currently controlling the fuel leak putting absorbent and taking a defensive measure on this. It is being contained with absorbent and it's just right here on the scene, there is no leaking into waterways."

Rodriguez said the truck driver was not injured but the Honda driver was. He's currently in stable condition at Enloe Medical Center, as of Sunday evening.

Staying hot and hazy today, but relief from the heat is on the way for the middle of this week. We'll also have the potential for mountain thunderstorms on Wednesday. The heat returns this weekend.
