A tractor-trailer that was hauling liquid nitrogen crashed into a garbage truck Wednesday morning, shutting down two roads in Pinellas Park.

The garbage truck was backing out of a business onto 118th Avenue at 47th Street around 3:30 a.m. when it was struck by the tractor-trailer.

There are no serious injuries. The liquid nitrogen that leaked from the tractor-trailer is not a danger to the public and no evacuations were issued.

The westbound lanes of 118th Avenue remained closed as of 9:45 a.m.
