LAFAYETTE, Ind. - A fuel tanker rollover caused I-65 to be closed in both directions for more than seven hours Thursday near the Lafayette exit.
Police said a fuel truck loaded with Heptane, a highly flammable fuel, rolled over near the intersection of State Road 43 and I-65 in Tippecanoe County on Thursday morning.
Both northbound and southbound lanes were closed for more than seven hours. Northbound lanes opened at 2 p.m. and southbound lanes opened at 2:45 p.m.
The driver of the tanker was not injured. No citations were issued but the investigation was ongoing.
Police said a car backfiring or a lit cigarette butt tossed from a vehicle could have caused the liquid to ignite.
