DICKSON, Tenn. (WTVF) — A portion of Highway 70 has reopened in Dickson County after an early-morning rollover crash involving a fuel tanker.

The incident happened overnight Friday, located just past Eno Road between Dickson and Tennessee City.

Tennessee Highway Patrol officials said the driver was traveling west when he veered off the roadway and overturned.

The tanker was hauling some 7,000 gallons of fuel, 1,000 of which leaked from the truck.

The driver suffered a leg injury and was taken to an area hospital.
