BIRMINGHAM, AL -

The driver is OK after rolling his truck on I-20/59 earlier today.

Around 12 p.m., an 18-wheeler hauling empty barrels crashed through a barrier on I-20/59. Fuel was spilled as a result of the accident, but there were no additional hazardous materials spilled.

The driver climbed out of the cab but was taken to the hospital for evaluation. No other vehicles were involved.

Earlier today, one northbound lane and all multiple southbound lanes of I-59 were closed. As of 2:45 p.m., the northbound lanes have all reopened, but one southbound lane remains closed.

At this point, there's no word as to what caused the wreck.
