MORGAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

An 18-wheeler overturned Monday night in Morgan County.

It happened after 8:30 p.m. on Highway 36 and Mount Tabor Road near the Hartselle area.

Authorities said the truck and a second vehicle collided.

State troopers, Morgan County officials, and fire crews are working to clear the scene.

Concerns over leaking fuel led to crews, including a hazardous materials team, siphoning one of the truck's saddle tanks.

The truck, which has Texas plates, was carrying animal feed at the time of the wreck.

One woman was transported to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Troopers estimate it could take as long as 7 hours to clear the scene.

The truck was headed from Foxborough to a farm when it overturned. An investigation into the wreck is ongoing.

Pilgrim's is sucking out the feed from the overturned truck, which workers say will take around five hours. However, the road will not be closed for that. 

After the feed is sucked out, the trailer will be uprighted and removed, which is when the road will be closed off.
