Wellington County OPP says roads are still closed in the vicinity of a collision at County Rd. 12 and County Rd. 7 in Mapleton.

A fuel truck and a large stake truck collided at about 8:45am Wednesday morning.

The driver of the fuel truck was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries.

A minor fuel leak was quickly fixed, and a second fuel truck responded to pump fuel from the damaged truck. Then a heavy tow removed the vehicle.

Police continue to investigate and say charges are pending.

County Rd. 7 is closed between Alma and Rothsay while officers were at the scene. County 12 is also closed between 12th Line and 14th Line Township of Mapleton. This closure is expected to be in effect until around 7pm.
