DALLAS (AP) - A tanker truck has overturned atop an elevated exchange in North Dallas known as the High Five causing major delays for commuters.

Dallas police say the accident was reported around 4:15 a.m. Thursday on the eastbound ramp of Interstate 635. The Texas Department of Transportation reports the exchange at U.S. 75 and I-635 was closed for hours amid cleanup. I-635 reopened late Thursday morning, and U.S. 75 reopened about 3 p.m. The ramp where the accident occurred reopened a short time later.

Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says the truck carrying a resin used to produce plastic struck a wall on the ramp and overturned.

Evans said firefighters sprayed water on the tanker as a precaution to keep it cool until a contractor could unload the fuel.
