I-80 just west of Green River was shut down for a couple of hours Monday afternoon following a truck accident. The Wyoming Department of Transportation says the eastbound lane was closed from the Covered Wagon exit near Rolling Green Country Club to exit 89 on the west side of Green River. Traffic was diverted through Jamestown, and then back on to the interstate at milepost 89 on ramp. At 11 Monday morning, a tanker semi-truck rolled over, crossing lanes of traffic. 

The tanker was carrying hazardous water, but did not spill its cargo in the roll over and there was no spillage onto the road. No word from authorities if their were injuries involved
