A truck loaded with 7500 gallons of Diesel fuel overturned this afternoon on I-10.  Units from Theodore Volunteer Fire Department and Mobile Fire Rescue Haz-Mat units responded to Exit 10 at around 12:05pm today. 

The driver was able to get out on his own and was reported to have only minor injuries.  The spill is reported as contained at this time, but will take an extended period of time to clean up. 

The ramp is expected to reopen around 10:00pm tonight.
