18 wheeler spills oil on I-35 after crash above Brazos river

WACO, TX (KXXV) - Traffic was backed up for miles Saturday night after an 18-wheeler crashes on I-35, spilling oil above the Brazos river.

An 18-wheeler crashed into the wall on the southbound bridge above the Brazos river about 9 p.m. Saturday night. Texas Department of Transportation says the truck and trailer climbed over barrier walls stranding itself and rupturing fuel tanks. A hazmat team was called to the scene to control the fuel spill and prevent it from spilling into the river.

All lanes were closed until 10:22 p.m., when the trailer was removed. TXDOT says they kept the left lane closed for hazmat cleanup. They then opened the middle and left lanes.

The cause of the accident is unclear.
