The right lane on I-35 southbound near exit 320 was reopened Sunday morning after a crash involving two 18-wheelers.

The crash happened just before 3 a.m. after two tires on an 18-wheeler blew out, a first responder at the scene told News Channel 25.

The driver of that 18-wheeler lost control and swerved into another 18-wheeler. The damage caused a fuel tank leak.

First responders and a hazmat cleanup crew were at the scene for several hours to clean the spill up.

None of the drivers were hurt.

The right lane reopened just before 6:45 a.m., according to TxDOT.
