A fuel tanker rolled over onto its side at the on-ramp to State Road 826 near the Golden Glades Interchange at around 2:00 p.m., Sunday. The truck was headed westbound on the Palmetto Expressway.

Florida Highway Patrol and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue crews responded to the scene of the accident; HazMat crews reported to the scene after the truck began to leak fuel onto the Tri-Rail tracks.

Highway traffic was redirected to 163rd Street.

Tri-Rail services were suspended while crews cleaned up the scene, and bus bridges were constructed to transport passengers between the Opa-Locka and Hollywood Tri-Rail stations.

Officials said, it will take hours to move the fuel tanker, but they hope to have it moved by rush hour traffic, Monday morning.

One person involved in the accident suffered from minor injuries.
