HOMEWOOD - AL -

Homewood police were called to an accident around 4 p.m. at Highway 31 North at the Lakeshore Exit in Homewood.  A tanker truck hit the guard rail getting onto Hwy 31 Northbound. 

The truck driver says the extended ramp was a factor in the accident. 

The undercarriage hit the extended part of guard rail causing the undercarriage to tilt back toward the back of the truck. One of the back tires was also damaged in the accident causing it to go flat.  A little bit of oil was spilt from the truck's tank. 

No other vehicles involved and no injuries were reported in the accident.

Police say it could be several hours before the roadway is opened back up.
