A tanker truck carrying jet fuel crashed on the 401 early Sunday morning, causing the closure of the Highway in both directions near Cambridge.

Police say the truck had rolled on to its side after it collided with an eastbound vehicle and spilled fuel in both the eastbound and westbound lanes.

The truck was carrying 50,000 litres of fuel.

The truck driver was taken to hospital for minor injuries.

All westbound and eastbound lanes have since been re-opened.
