LAKE COUNTY, Fla. - A two-vehicle crash involving a septic truck forced officials to close a bridge Tuesday in Lake County because of a sewage spill, deputies said.

The crash happened on Howey Bridge, which will be closed for an indefinite amount of time.

The Lake County Sheriff's Office said a vehicle collided with a septic truck, causing a major spill. 

Crews are working to clean the spill.

"We hope it will be open by your afternoon commute," deputies tweeted.
