Emergency responders were on the scene in south Laredo early monday morning to clean up the mess an 18 wheeler left, diesel all over the road. In addition to police and EMS, TXDOT employees were there. "Basically what we do is we don't want any traffic flowing here, so we get a little far apart and try to move traffic around." TXDOT employee Luis Perez says not everyone is happy with the detour. "Some people get upset, but it's for their own safety." Naturally people are curious and want to know what's going on, which can build up a line of traffic when they start asking TXDOT employees questions. "We don't want to cause another accident so we just want to act quick." Perez says he doesn't want to put anyone in danger and puts the motorists safety first and are usually the last to leave the scene. "As long as it takes them to take danger away from the highway."
