Highway 61 between highways 10 and 95 will be closed in both directions until about 2 p.m. Wednesday as the Minnesota State Patrol and Hastings Fire Department clean up a rollover involving a propane tanker truck.

Emergency crews on the scene are waiting for the arrival of a crane, which will lift the tanker truck out of the center ditch.

The accident, which involved the tanker and another vehicle, occurred at 8:58 a.m. Wednesday at Highway 61 and Highway 95/Manning Avenue, north of Hastings.

The crash caused minor injuries, according to the State Patrol incident report.

The diesel gas tank on the truck was leaking, and the road will remain closed until the spill is cleaned up, according to the report.
