Tanker crash closes U.S. Highway 87

A crash involving at least one tanker truck on U.S. Highway 87 between Smiley and Nixon in Gonzales County forced officials to close the highway Friday night.

Gonzales County officials said the crash occurred after 10 p.m. and that no injuries were immediately reported.

Some traffic was diverted through Gonzales to bypass the crash. One report said fuel was leaking on the highway.

Other details were not available late Friday.
