CORINTH (CBSDFW.COM) — Interstate-35 in Corinth opened up Monday morning after an 18-wheeler crash left the highway closed for almost 10 hours.

According to police, the driver of an 18-wheeler lost control after suffering a blown tire in the northbound lanes at Corinth Parkway.

The vehicle hit a barrier wall and “ping-ponged” back and forth across the highway, according to officials.

The truck spilled 139 gallons of diesel fuel onto the roadway, requiring the work of hazmat crews throughout the night.

The female driver was taken to a Denton-area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The roadway was opened just before 6 a.m.
