A massive buildup of traffic on the James Walter Francis Highway occurred Tuesday morning when a fuel tank dislodged from the truck on which it was being transported.
The tank has partially fallen from the truck.
The tank dislodged just as the truck was exiting the roundabout in Port Purcell and heading in the direction of Road Town.
The truck subsequently stopped in the roadway; creating a backup of vehicles coming from multiple directions on Tortola.
Up to press time, workers were on location trying to hoist the tank and fit back on to the truck.
It is not clear how tank came to be dislodged.
