BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - UPDATE: According to the CHP, the southbound Hwy. 99 transition to eastbound Hwy. 58 -- along with one southbound lane of Hwy. 99 -- have all reopened following Monday night's crash.
The eastbound Highway 58 on-ramp to Mojave and Tehachapi from southbound Highway 99 is blocked due to a tanker truck on its side that leaked diesel fuel.
The California Highway Patrol got a call around 9:30 p.m. that a tanker truck collided with another truck, and was blocking the Highway 58 eastbound exit off southbound Highway 99.
Less than 20 gallons of diesel fuel spilled from the actual truck itself, not the tanks that it was carrying. All of the fuel has been contained.
Traffic is blocked to get on Highway 58, and the number four lane of southbound 99 is also blocked, according to the California Highway Patrol website.
CHP says no drugs or alcohol seem to be involved in the crash, and one of the drivers was taken to Kern Medical Center with minor injuries.
CHP says the on-ramp will be closed for at least another hour.
