LITTLE COTTONWOOD CANYON, Utah — A hazardous material team was dispatched to a rollover crash in Little Cottonwood Canyon Wednesday night.

Police initially believed diesel fuel was leaking but later stated that fire crews determined the leaking substance was actually hydraulic fluid.

According to the Unified Police Department, the dump truck rolled near the Lisa Falls area of the canyon. UPD first tweeted about the crash shortly after 8 p.m.

The driver suffered minor injuries, but fluid began leaking from the truck.

Police say they are investigating speed as a possible factor in the crash. Fox 13 News will update this story as more details emerge.
