    A view of the area from the camera at I-30 and Sylvan as traffic began moving again Thursday night, hours after a crash shut the highway down to one lane.

    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.
