A crash on the I-515/U.S. 95 Northbound has blocked all travelling lanes.

NHP PIO Jason Buratczuk reports that a truck carrying a cement mixer blew a tire while driving on the highway. The blowout caused the cement truck to hit a tow truck.

The cement mixer then hit the wall, and fell off the back end of the truck. The contents of the cement mixer spilled on the roadway, and the mixer destroyed a barrier between the U.S. 95 NB and the Charleston exit.

Diesel fuel was spilled into the road because of the crash. Hazmat will need to clean up the highway before it can re-open.

No injuries have been reported. It is unknown how long the clean-up will take.
