CHELMSFORD, Mass. (AP) — Massachusetts State Police say a fuel tanker has rolled over on Route 3 near the Lowell Connector shortly after 11 p.m., spilling some of its fuel on the highway.

State police say the tanker is leaking and that a regional Hazmat team is responding. As a precaution, authorities say that all roads within 1,000 feet of the crash site have been closed, and there are a number of other closures.

Dave Procopio of the Massachusetts State Police says the cause of the crash remains under investigation and authorities are looking into whether the tanker rolled after being cut off by another vehicle.

No injuries have been reported.
