A tractor-trailer rollover accident, unknown injuries, is reported at Oak and Main streets in the City of Batavia. City fire and Mercy medics are responding.

UPDATE 1:59 p.m.: A responder reports a saddle tank on the vehicle is leaking.

UPDATE 2:03 p.m.: The third platoon is asked to report to city fire headquarters.

UPDATE 2:18 p.m.: A source at the scene said the tractor-trailer was hauling "wheat middlings" -- a by-product of flour production -- to a Baskin plant in Bethany to be processed into livestock feed.

UPDATE 2:31 p.m.: The first platoon is requested to report to fire headquarters.

UPDATE 3 p.m.: City Fire Chief Jim Maxwell said motorists should avoid the area for the next couple of hours. He said it will probably be 5 or 6 o'clock before they can get the vehicle uprighted and removed, along with the debris. Rush hour is still ahead and the crash is impacting traffic on routes 98/63/33. No injuries reported, nor were other vehicles involved, Maxwell said. The tractor-trailer was southbound on Route 98 and was turning eastbound on Main Street when either the load shifted or a mechanical problem occured and the whole thing went sideways. Besides the mess of crushed wheat and traffic, firefighters had a couple of saddle tanks leaking fuel. They were able to contain the spill and prevent it from going down into the storm  drain, Maxwell said.
