Indio, CA -

Two semi trucks collided Tuesday on Interstate 10 east of Indio, resulting in a 200-gallon fuel spill and one minor injury.

The crash was reported just after 5:30 a.m. on westbound I-10, east of Dillon Road, and crews were still on scene as of 11 a.m. cleaning up the spilled diesel fuel, said Jody Hagemann of the Riverside County Fire Department.

The Riverside County Department of Environmental Health and Caltrans were overseeing the cleanup effort, which triggered the closure of the right lane of the westbound I-10 for an unknown duration.
