RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia state police say a tanker truck has overturned and spilled gasoline on Interstate 95 in Chesterfield County.

Spokeswoman Corinne Geller says the southbound truck collided with another vehicle at 6:07 a.m. Thursday near the 57-mile marker. The truck then veered off the interstate, struck a wall and overturned.

Geller says cleanup crews are pumping the gasoline out of the tank in order to contain the leak.

She says the truck’s driver was taken to VCU Medical Center for treatment of injuries that were serious but not life threatening. The driver and two passengers in the other vehicle were transported to Chippenham Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

The interstate’s southbound lanes and two northbound lanes were closed for several hours.
