One lane of traffic on Highway 54 West is currently closed.

One lane of traffic on Highway 54 West past the Eldon/Tuscumbia exit toward Lake Ozark is currently closed due to a motor vehicle accident.

Earlier this afternoon, a semi truck carrying fuel is believed to have had a tire blow out, overturned and rolled down the embankment.

Multiple agencies are currently at the scene. At the moment, five tankers full of water are in route to the accident scene including tankers from Osage Beach, Tuscumbia and Rocky Mount. A haz-mat team has been called in and has responded.

The emergency personnel staging area is on Cave Point Road near the former Highway 54 Lloyd Belt location.

Lake News will update this story as soon as more details are available.
