Portions of Interstate 65 in Indianapolis were shut down on Wednesday, following a truck accident, when a tanker truck transporting 8,500 gallons of fuel overturned.

Southbound I-65 on the south side of Indianapolis was reopened after six hours and traffic was backed up for nearly eight hours.

A second tanker truck arrived to drain the fuel from the truck before it could be moved from the highway, Indiana State Police said.

According to authorities, the truck driver was not seriously injured when the truck overturned.

Heavy rain was falling at the time, but troopers were not able to immediately learn the cause of the crash.

A separate accident shut down I-65 for several hours Wednesday near Seymour, sixty miles south of Indianapolis, when a refrigerated trailer caught fire.
