DALLAS (AP) - Interstate-30 in Dallas is closed in one direction after a wreck involving an 18-wheeler truck spilled diesel fuel on the highway.

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

Westbound traffic is shut down on Interstate-30 at Sylvan Avenue, just west of downtown.

Authorities said that the shutdown could last several hours as hazardous materials crews try to clear the scene.

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