MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Montgomery Police say the accident on I-65 Thursday morning was not involving a tanker truck, but instead a fuel tank being transported in a tandem-axle trailer.

Officials say the single-vehicle accident occurred when the fuel tank became dislodged and rolled off the truck after one of the trailer tires blew out. Liquid, that was determined to be diesel fuel, spilled.

Currently crews are working to clean-up the remaining fuel. Lanes of traffic will reopen shortly. The incident happened on I-65 northbound between Selma Highway and the boulevard, exit 168.

There were no injuries reported with this accident.
