MIDLAND - A big rig caused a huge mess and closed down Loop 250 on Wednesday morning.

That's after the truck driver lost control, flipped and jack-knifed into the median.

The accident happened right in front of Hollywood Theaters.

One of the tanks on the truck ruptured and leaked diesel fuel.

Hazmat crews had to come and clean it up, which took about an hour.

Traffic was re-routed to the service roads.

No one was hurt.
