MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday afternoon that the westbound lanes of U.S. Highway 80 have reopened several hours after an 18-wheeler crashed and overturned.

Details on the crash remain limited but a WSFA 12 News crew found the tanker truck and a Volkswagen Beetle as part of the crash scene. It’s unclear what the tanker was carrying and no information is known on injuries or the cause of the crash.

The crash has caused major traffic delays with Montgomery police assisting in blocking off traffic near Felder Road, which is close to the Montgomery Regional Airport.

Despite the westbound lanes reopening, the MCSO said commuters should remain cautious while emergency responders remain on the scene.
