I-30 reopens after wreck near downtown Dallas

Posted: Updated:

Interstate 30 in Dallas was closed in one direction for hours early Monday after a wreck involving an 18-wheeler truck spilled diesel fuel on the highway.

The Dallas County Sheriff's Office said the 18-wheeler struck a Kia and then hit a traffic barrier, rupturing its fuel tank and causing a major spill.

Westbound traffic was shut down on I-30 at Sylvan Avenue, just west of downtown during rush hour, with lanes re-opening throughout the morning.

Authorities said the shutdown lasted several hours as hazardous materials crews had to clear the scene.

The driver and the two passengers of the Kia suffered minor injuries.
