Tanker crash shuts down I-10 for hours in Duval County

Eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 in Jacksonville closed during the middle of the day Tuesday after a tanker truck flipped on the entrance ramp to I-295.

It was a hazmat situation with highly flammable liquid, according to Jacksonville Fire and Rescue.

According to FHP a tanker truck thought to have highly flammable liquid overturned at the ramp from I-295 from I-10 eastbound.

FHP later confirmed that the liquid is a type of detergent. HP said the taker was full and the company sent another truck to transfer the liquid.
