BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say an unknown amount of jet fuel and another chemical leaked from an overturned tanker truck in western North Dakota.

KXMB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1oe2lVU ) that the truck crashed on a county road five miles east of Belfield on Friday afternoon.

Authorities shut down both lanes of I-94 and Highway 10 in the area following the rollover. The westbound land was reopened at about 2:30 p.m.

Highway Patrol Sgt. Tom Iverson says it’s unknown if there are any injuries. He says the driver of the truck appeared to be the only person involved in the accident.

Authorities say jet fuel had to be drained out of the truck before attempting to move it.
