Part of Interstate 35 closed for several hours north of U.S. Highway 183 after it and another vehicle collided.
The truck’s small saddle tank ruptured and spilled a significant amount of diesel fuel after the collision just after midnight, according to the Austin Fire Department. Police closed the northbound lanes of I-35 as they investigated and as crews cleaned up the fuel, and it reopened around 5:30 a.m.
The driver of the truck was taken to the hospital with critical, life-threatening injuries, according to Austin-Travis County EMS
