A rollover accident has been reported just outside of the city limits.

According to the Laredo Police Department, the accident happened at the intersection of Beltway Parkway and the I-35 South Frontage Road.

As a result, police have closed off the westbound traffic and the I-35 south exit ramp to Beltway Parkway.

According to the Laredo Fire Department, an 18-wheeler was hauling a shipment of Nitric oxide containers.

A hazmat team was called to the scene and determined there was no leak or breach of any kind.

Officials say the driver of the truck sustained minor injuries and was transported to Doctors Hospital.

The area is still closed off to the traveling public.

Authorities are advising drivers to expect delays and exercise patients if you are driving in that area.
