DALLAS - Six people were transported to area hospitals and hazmat was called to the scene after a four-vehicle crash that shut down the westbound lanes of Interstate 30 near Sylvan Avenue in Dallas.

The crash spilled fuel onto the roadway of the I-30 bridge over the Trinity River just before 8 a.m. Thursday, spurring a traffic backup. It also sent a box truck involved in the crash spinning, leaving the cab of the truck dangling from a guard rail and facing in the wrong direction.

A tractor trailer, box truck, SUV and car were all involved in the wreck.

Part of the guard rail was heavily damaged where the box truck crashed, leaving a large open gap and debris from the rail on the ground below.

The six injured in the crash were all inside the box truck and were transported to Methodist Hospital. Five of the injured suffered minor injuries. The sixth person is reported to be in the intensive care unit recovering from his injuries.

Authorities are investigating the cause of the crash.
