The Decatur County Sheriff's Office is currently on scene of an overturned tanker crash that is blocking State Road 65.

Deputies along with Florida Highway Patrol have closed the road for the next several hours in the area of Attapulgus Highway and Dodger Ball Park Road, near the Florida/Georgia state line.

Troopers say the crash happened at 6 a.m on Friday.

Authorities told WTXL that they have detour routes in place for both Florida and Georgia. Cleaning this up is a multi-step ordeal, that involves waiting on another truck to come in and pump all of the gas out of the overturned one.

Authorities also said the road will re-open after Decatur County Sheriff's Office completes the tanker crash.

At this time troopers have not released any additional information.
