I-25 in Las Cruces re-opens after Hazmat cleanup from overturned fuel tanker

I-25 crash

LAS CRUCES, New Mexico — New Mexico State Police shut down a stretch of Interstate 25 in Las Cruces and a hazardous materials team responded Thursday after a rollover crash involving a commercial motor vehicle hauling fuel.

The driver sustained unknown injuries and was transported to an area hospital, police said.

NMSP spokesman Dusty Francisco said the Las Cruces Fire Department’s Hazmat team was called about 2 p.m. to assist because diesel and gas was believed to be leaking from the tanker.

Transportation officials said I-25 south and northbound lanes at mile post 18-32 had finally reopened as of 11:30 p.m., after the accident was removed.
