INDIANAPOLIS - Part of State Road 32 was closed Thursday morning after a diesel tanker overturned, officials said.
The truck overturned just east of Ditch Road and began leaking its contents. SR 32 was closed between Ditch and Spring Mill roads.
Officials said the road was expected to stay closed for several hours for cleanup, perhaps as long as eight hours.
The truck was loaded with 7,500 gallons of diesel fuel, but Westfield Fire Chief Joe Lyons said "minimal product" was spilled.
Officials said the tank had to be drained before the truck could be righted.
No injuries were reported in the incident.
Officials said the truck clipped some power lines while it was overturning, but Duke Energy's website reported no major outages in the area.
But a spokeswoman for the City of Westfield said power would be shut off intentionally for about an hour -- starting at 12:30 p.m. -- as a necessary part of the cleanup.
The power outage would affect Maple Glen Elementary School, and the Westfield spokeswoman said school officials were notified ahead of time.
