LEWISVILLE -- The northbound lanes of Interstate 35E were closed to traffic Monday afternoon after a truck overturned.

Motorists were being diverted to the service road ahead of the wreck near the Fox Avenue exit. The backup was estimated at four miles as workers removed the truck and then cleaned up spilled diesel fuel.

It was not clear whether anyone was injured in the wreck.

One northbound lane was open to traffic at 4 p.m., and all lanes were open about an hour after that.

The cause of the accident was under investigation.
