Spill sends oil gushing into Hudson River; cause unclear

WEEHAWKEN, New Jersey (WABC) -- It is still unclear what caused the spill that sent oil gushing into the Hudson River.

The fuel leaked from a truck Friday morning just south of the New York Waterway ferry terminal in Weehawken.

50 gallons of diesel spilled out of the truck into a storm drain, and about a third of that made its way into the Hudson River.

Boats and containment booms are working to soak up the diesel oil.
