(WKTV) - An accident involving a tractor-trailer and a utility truck in Munnsville Friday afternoon has left State Route 46 closed.

According to Madison County Undersheriff John Ball, a tractor-trailer was traveling down Williams Road when the truck lost its brakes, causing it to crash into a utility truck. One minor injury was reported.

The Department of Environmental Conservation was on the scene for a small spill of solvent, paint and paint thinner. A few residences near the scene of the accident were evacuated as a precaution, but have since returned to their homes after it was determined there was no toxic threat, Ball said.

The accident is still under investigation by the Madison County Sheriff's Office. State Route 46 is expected to remain closed until about 4 p.m.
