The 134 East connector to the 2 South in Glendale was reopened Wednesday after an early-morning tanker crash.

The incident was reported at about 3:30 a.m. The connector road was closed for several hours, backing up traffic through the morning commute before partially reopening.

The overturned truck mangled some railing at the scene and reportedly knocked down a light pole.

According to authorities on scene, the diesel tanker on the truck remained intact, though an unknown quantity of milk spilled from the tanker as a result of the accident. The milk leaked into storm drains.

The truck driver was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. The cause of the accident was under investigation.
