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 says 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 I-30 at Sylvan Avenue, just west of downtown.

Authorities say 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.
