Fuel Spill Closes I-30 in Dallas

The main lanes of westbound Interstate 30 were closed for hours Wednesday morning after an 18-wheeler crashed into the center median and started leaking fuel.

The crash happened around 2:30 a.m. just before Akard Street.

Witnesses tell Dallas Sheriff's deputies they saw the rig drift over the lane into the median. The truck's wheel and fuel tank were snapped off in the crash.

About 70 gallons of fuel spilled on the road. Environmental crews arrived around 5 a.m. to clean up the fuel. 

The driver was not injured.
