CHARLOTTE -- The 2500 block of the Brookshire Freeway is back open about six hours after a gasoline tanker truck wrecked.

The truck rolled over at about 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning pinning the driver inside.

He was sent to the hospital with what medics called potentially life-threatening injuries.

Firefighters say about 50 gallons of fuel leaked from the tank.

Crews were on the scene for more than seven hours.

No one else was injured.
