PLANO, TX – A tractor-trailer accident in Plano Thursday night left a driver injured and shut down a stretch of U.S. 75, according to CBS DFW.

Plano Fire Rescue said the incident involved a flatbed 18-wheeler carrying a large drainage pipe. The truck crashed on southbound 75 near the President George Bush Turnpike at about 7:30 p.m.

The driver sustained minor injuries and was transported to Medical Center of Plano. A hazmat team responded to the scene to clean up a diesel spill caused by the crash.

By midnight, three lanes of the highway were back open as the EPA and the Texas Department of Public Safety finished cleaning the residual fuel.

The cause of the wreck remains under investigation.
