A crash involving a tanker truck has closed a portion of Vietnam Veterans Boulevard in Hendersonville.

The incident happened Friday morning near the Saundersville Road exit. 

Officials with Hendersonville Police said the tanker is leaking fuel onto the roadway.

Specific details of the crash were not known. However, Sky 5 flew over the scene and it appears a tanker traveling east was involved in a crash with a car before crossing into westbound lanes. 

Vietnam Veterans Boulevard has been closed in both directions as a result of the crash. It’s unclear when it would reopen.
