Const. Robert Visconti says the truck was carrying 50,000 litres of highly flammable fuel when it rolled over early this morning after colliding with another vehicle in the eastbound lanes.

He says the crash happened just before 2 a.m. and fuel spilled across both the eastbound and westbound lanes of the highway.
