It took hours for crews to reopen westbound Interstate 30 in Dallas after a crash on the Trinity River Bridge west of downtown.

For more than six hours only one lane of traffic was getting through.

A dump truck and another vehicle crashed, spilling 200 gallons of fuel onto the roadway at around 3:30 p.m. Thursday.

The severity of injuries is not yet known.

Officials with the Texas Department of Transportation said it will take a few hours to clean up the fuel spill, but the cleanup took longer.

Just after 10 p.m. all westbound lanes were open to traffic.
