Florida Highway Patrol says accident happened in Fort Myers

The Florida Highway Patrol has released a video showing the moment a truck crashed and overturned, spilling more than 1,300 gallons of cooking oil. 

The incident happened Thursday on Buckingham Road in Fort Myers.  

The Florida Highway Patrol said those involved suffered "minor injuries" but that it could have been much worse as "no one was wearing seatbelts."

"Buckle Up Florida!" it added.

The footage shows the truck traveling along a road before it flips over on its side.
