THE BRONX - All roads have been reopened after a fuel tanker flipped over on the Bruckner Interchange Saturday morning, resulting in a small fuel spill that caused heavy delays. The accident has now been cleared.

There are no reports of injuries or of anyone being trapped inside the truck. The cause of the accident is under investigation.
