A truck crashed after hydroplaning off the road Tuesday afternoon in Cape Coral.

According to the Cape Coral Fire Department, a truck towing a trailer crashed into a tree at Del Prado Boulevard North and Averill Boulevard.

Just before hitting the tree, the truck hydroplaned off the road.

The driver was transported to a hospital as a trauma alert.

At first, leaking fuel was a concern, however, firefighters were able to mitigate the hazard.
