The crash was reported at approximately 9:42 p.m. Saturday. There is no word on casualties at this time.

A Hazardous Materials team is also on scene.

Editor’s note: Bedford resident Amy Lloyd reported that many of her neighbors on Fayette Road were drawn out of their houses after the sound of  “two or three deep booms that you could feel as well as hear” shortly before 10 pm. “I saw a huge, mushroom-like ball of smoke above the trees, with flames and sparks coming from it,” she noted.
