The A7 motorway in the Sagunto area of Valencia was closed on Wednesday morning, after two trucks collided, one of which spilled around 10,000 litres of diesel onto the carriageway.
The incident occurred at around 04:30 in the morning, in the area of the former toll road, in the Barcelona direction. For reasons under investigation, a truck collided with the rear of the tanker, rupturing one of the three compartments of the truck carrying diesel.
The remaining oil was siphoned into another truck, and the damaged vehicles removed by crane. The driver of the rear truck was taken to hospital with multiple injuries.
