ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - People looking to get out of town may have encountered some roadblocks Thursday morning.


According to the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office, a semi flipped over on I-25 near Broadway in southeast Albuquerque and forced officials to close both directions of I-25 for hours.

It’s unclear what caused the accident. However, authorities told KOB the vehicle spilled somewhere between 200 and 500 gallons of fuel.

Dozens of emergency crews responded including New Mexico State Police, Albuquerque Fire Rescue and a hazmat team.

Both directions of I-25 were opened later Thursday afternoon.

No injuries were reported, according to officials.
