An accident involving a tractor and trailer and a dump truck snarled traffic during early morning rush hour Tuesday as students were making their way to school while others were trying to get to work. According to the NC Highway Patrol, the tractor and trailer rolled into the roadway and struck the dump truck ripping a hole in the oil pan and spilling motor oil onto the roadway. Crews are still working to clean up the spill that occurred just past East Yancey Middle School. No injuries were reported and no further details are available at this time.
