A TRUCK rolled off the Pacific Hwy this morning.

Tweed Police inspector Gary Cowan said the truck was carrying fruit and vegetables and the driver escaped without injury.

A Tweed Fire and Rescue spokesman said a HASMAT unit attended the scene about 8.30am and laid barriers to contain diesel. The unit was called back by the rural fire brigade for additional containment about 10.30am.

Emergency crews are still at the scene.
