A portion of W.Va. 86 was closed Wednesday after a crash between two tanker trucks carrying water that caused a diesel fuel spill on the road.

According to officials from the Glen Dale Volunteer Fire Department, the crash occurred just before 2 p.m. when a tanker truck rear-ended another while traveling north.

Officials said a tanker spilled about a half of a gas tank of diesel fuel as a result of the crash.

The spill took about four hours to clean.

W.Va. 86 was closed for several hours from W.Va. 2 and Riley Hill Road, forcing traffic to turn around.

Several tanker trucks unable to turn around were lined up behind the scene waiting for crews to clean the spill.

No injuries were reported and no other vehicles were involved in the crash.

Glen Dale and Sherrard volunteer fire departments, the Marshall County Sheriff's Department and West Virginia Department of Transportation responded to the scene.
