FORT WORTH — North Main Street in Fort Worth was closed at Loop 820 Monday afternoon after a tanker truck overturned.

The big rig dumped hot asphalt all over the road in the wreck at 1:30 p.m.

Workers transferred the asphalt that remained inside the tanker to a second truck before they could tow away the disabled vehicle.

Fort Worth officials said they hoped to have the roadway reopened by 11 p.m. Monday.

The driver of the truck was not seriously injured.
