PORT EVERGLADES, FLA. (WSVN) - A tanker truck caused a bad sewage leak at Port Everglades.

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue units responded to the scene along berth 25 and 26 at the port at around 11:30 a.m., Monday.

Port Everglades officials said a truck driver hauling oily water waste from a Celebrity Silhouette cruise ship crashed into the exterior of a loading bridge and punctured the tank of the truck, which leaked onto the dock and into a storm drain.

About 700 gallons of the liquid, believed to be a mixture of urinal wastewater and kitchen waste, went down the storm drain.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

Crews spent the afternoon capping the leak, and cleaned it all up.
