Gas truck rolls over on I-595 after Fort Lauderdale crash

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – When a car and a gasoline tanker truck sideswiped on I-595, it prompted the truck to rollover over on its side and spill around 20 gallons of fuel on the road Monday.

CBS 12 said the crash happened around 9 a.m. The drivers were unharmed.

Rescue teams were able to clean the spill and contain the fuel. West and eastbound lanes on I-595 closed for several hours so 9,000 gallons of gasoline could be transported to another truck.

Westbound traffic was redirected to I-595 South, and eastbound traffic to Florida’s Turnpike. The U.S. 1 and Port Everglades exits were also shut down.

No other details have been released.
