LAS VEGAS (AP) - All lanes of Interstate 15 have reopened near the California-Nevada state line following an early morning tanker crash and chemical spill.

California Highway Patrol Trooper Adam Croxton said late Friday afternoon that cleanup of the collision would continue for at least four hours and drivers can still expect traffic backups for miles in both directions.

A hazardous materials team is cleaning up 3,000 gallons of corrosive ferric chloride and a small amount of diesel fuel in the center median.

The truck collided with car a little before 6:30 a.m. Friday. No one was hurt in the crash or from the spill.

The interstate is a major route between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
