- CBS4 traffic alert we first told you about this morning. It's been a nightmare for commuters on I-95 in Broward County today. Here's a live look from Chopper Four where a gasoline tanker rolled over this morning, spilling thousands of gallons of fuel near the Atlantic Boulevard exit.

For about six hours, both northbound and southbound lanes were closed. Now just the northbound lanes remain closed. Crews were out all afternoon long cleaning up the fuel and trying to contain the leak.

Crews say it could be at least two hours before the roads are back open. The driver of the truck was not injured.
