Fuel spill shuts down I-30 Interstate

Posted: Updated:

A fuel spill shut down Interstate 30 westbound at Sylvan Avenue near downtown Dallas on Thursday afternoon.

About 200 gallons of fuel flooded I-30 during a crash involving a sedan that rear-ended a dump truck, officials said.

The crash punctured the truck's fuel tank, spilling its contents, they said. Video from the scene showed the mangled car on the fuel-soaked road.

The wreck backed up traffic for more than 8 miles.

Officials periodically allowed the right lane of westbound traffic to pass but it was unclear when I-30 would completely re-open.

No injuries were reported.
