MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A tractor trailer flipped over, spilling hundreds of gallons of flammable materials.

The tractor trailer flipped over around 8:30 Tuesday morning as it left eastbound Interstate 240 on the ramp onto Interstate 55.

It was carrying 5,000 gallons of Urea Fertilizer. Investigators said 500-600 gallons of the fertilizer leaked out of the tanker.

Investigators said the spill has been contained, and no fertilizer made it into the water drain.

The driver of the tanker went to the hospital in non-critical condition.
