A tanker carrying salt-water likely took a curve took fast, causing it to flip on Interstate 35W at 28th Street on Friday morning, Fort Worth police said.

Rescue crews responded to the overturned 18-wheeler on the I-35W southbound ramp to NE 28th Street at about 4:30 a.m.

The crash closed all the southbound lanes and caused delays in the northbound lanes during morning commute hours.

No one was injured.

A second tanker arrived on the scene to offload the first tanker, then a wrecker can upright it.

A wrecker was ordered just after 5 a.m. to clear the area.  The roadway was reopened shortly after 8 a.m.
