A section of Oklahoma State Highway 136 has been closed following a tanker truck crash.

According to officials with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, an area of Highway 136 about three miles north of Guymon in the Oklahoma Panhandle is closed and a nearby area being evacuated because the truck was carrying anhydrous ammonia and is equipped with pop-off valves. The Guymon Fire Department has crews at the scene of the crash. A spokesperson for the GFD said the driver of the truck was injured and crews were working to extract the man from his vehicle.

The Department of Environmental Quality will also be assisting with clean up at the crash site.
