PHOENIX, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Phoenix authorities said westbound Interstate 10 was closed early Wednesday when a truck rolled over and spilled coffee creamer and fuel onto the roadway.

The Department of Public Safety said the driver suffered minor injuries when the semi rolled near the interchange with State Route 51 around 12:45 a.m. Wednesday, KNXV-TV, Phoenix, reported.

Officer Carrick Cook of the Arizona Department of Public Safety said the driver apparently lost control of the vehicle and struck a guardrail, causing the truck to overturn, KHPO-TV, Phoenix, said.

Authorities told The Arizona Republic the interstate would likely be closed into the afternoon as crews worked to clean up the fuel and spilled creamer, reportedly French vanilla.
