An accident has resulted in a massive oil spill that has tied up traffic on I-40 eastbound near Rio Grande.
A vehicle collided with a semi and rolled over into the middle of the interstate, blocking at least three lanes of traffic. The semi spilled a large amount of oil as a reult of the crash.
The overturned vehicle has been cleared but authorities say it'll take some time to clear the oil from the highway.
Police tell KOB Eyewitness News 4 the driver of the overturned vehicle was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
