Oil tanker wreck shuts down ETX road

WOOD COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

A Wood County road was shut down for several hours on Wednesday night after a rollover wreck.

DPS officials say that a tanker truck turned over on FM 778, south of Quitman. The tanker, which was carrying crude oil, did not leak.

The truck did block part of the road, and traffic was blocked off for more than two hours while the oil was moved to another tanker, and a wrecker moved the big rig.

The driver of the tanker truck was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
