OKLAHOMA CITY – While many drivers are heading home from work, some may have to take a detour as crews are trying to clean up a fuel spill on a busy highway.

Oklahoma City firefighters and Hazmat crews rushed to the area of I-40 and MacArthur shortly after 3:30 p.m. following an accident between a small car and a semi-truck.

Authorities say a semi truck ruptured one of its fuel tanks and was leaking fuel on the roadway.

Bob Moore Chopper 4 is over the scene and it appears traffic heading westbound on I-40 is already becoming backed up.traffic

The on-ramp to I-40 from MacArthur is blocked off at this time.

Crews have also narrowed I-40 to one lane near MacArthur.

This is a developing story.
