BENTON COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

Oregon Department of Transportation crews were forced to close Highway 99W in both directions Friday morning near Corvallis after a double tanker truck flipped over, spilling gasoline onto the road.

A large amount of fuel has spilled onto the road. Crews are not sure when they will reopen the highway.

A detour is in place from Ryals Avenue to Independence Highway to Camp Adair Road. Drivers should expect delays.  

There is no word on injuries or the cause of the crash.
