KEIZER, OR (KPTV) - A double-tanker fuel truck tipped over on Interstate 5 Wednesday night, blocking traffic in Keizer south of Brooks, the Oregon Department of Transportation said.

ODOT said the truck blocked two southbound lanes at milepost 261.

Oregon State Police confirmed gasoline was leaking out of one of the tanks and estimated it would take crews several hours to clean up.

ODOT said about 1,400 gallons spilled.

One lane of I-5 was open immediately after the crash.

By 8 a.m. Thursday, all lanes of traffic were open. Drivers should continue to expect delays in the area.
