Explosion sends one to the hospital Tuesday morning

ERIE COUNTY (WTVG) - One person is in the hospital after an explosion at Coles Energy in Erie County.

It happened before 7:00 AM Tuesday while, according to Sheriff Paul Sigsworth, a male employee was transferring fuel from one truck to another.

That employee was the only one injured in the explosion.

The Erie County Sheriff says the employee was taken to the hospital, but wouldn't comment on the extent of his injuries.

No other business in the area were affected, and the road, SR 113, remained open to traffic.

Sheriff Sigsworth says he's not sure if the business is open as usual today.
