BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Authorities closed I-94 Thursday night after a truck hauling 10,000 gallons of gas and diesel rolled into a median off the interstate.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says no one was injured. The patrol closed the interstate between Richardton and Hebron shortly after 9:30 p.m.

KXMB-TV reports the truck had about 9,000 gallons of gas and 1,000 gallons of diesel.

Sgt. Shawn Skogen says there was no damage to the tanker but some fuel was dripping out of the top of a hatch.

Officers rerouted traffic to Old Highway 10. Both lanes reopened shortly after midnight.
