Portion of I-35 in Moore reopens after being closed Sunday because of oil tanker explosion

Updated:
Things are back to normal on I-35 near Moore. A much different scene from Sunday about this time.

Thick black smoke could be seen for miles. A tanker carrying 8,00 gallons of diesel fuel exploded after it collided with another vehicle.

Amazingly the drivers were able to escape without injury, thanks to the help of Good Samaritans at the scene. Greg Parsons, "she had gotten lost in the smoke and had ran into the barrier, so I just had to go in and find her.”

The Interstate was shut down Sunday for more than ten hours while crews worked to clean up the charred mess.
