I-95 reopens after overturned truck spills fuel in Pompano Beach

POMPANO BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Lanes of Interstate 95 have reopened after tanker trouble caused problems in Pompano Beach.

Over 9,000 gallons of fuel spilled in the rollover wreck on I-95 at Atlantic Boulevard, Tuesday morning.

The driver was not hurt, but all northbound lanes were closed for most of the day as crews used foam and sand to soak up the gas.

Officials brought in another tanker to help siphon off the fuel that had spilled.

Drivers were forced off I-95 at the Cypress Creek exit.

Most lanes are flowing again after the roughly 11-hour closure.

The express lanes remain closed until repairs can made to that part of the highway.
