A concrete mixing truck crashed Monday in the Jefferson Park area, and some fluids leaked into the storm drain system, authorities said.

The crash was reported about 12:30 p.m. in the 3700 block of West 27th Street, the Los Angeles Fire Department reported.

Firefighters freed the truck driver, who was briefly trapped in the wreckage, according to the LAFD.

“Diesel fuel, motor oil and hydraulic fluid leak is now contained on site, though a small amount entered the storm drain system prior to LAFD arrival,” an LAFD statement said.

Crews were sent to handle the cleanup of the spilled fluids.
