Update: Gasoline spill along I-40

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - Around 7:30 Wednesday morning a minor wreck near I-40 in Amarillo turned into a dangerous roadway obstruction.

Haz Mat crews spent several hours at the scene of a two vehicle wreck which caused gas to spill along I-40.

A car and tanker truck were involved in that crash, but the car wound up underneath the truck, and punctured the tank.

Gas leaked onto the roadway, causing police to shut down traffic in both directions on the frontage roads of I-40 and south Nelson for several hours.
