A tanker truck jackknifed on a rural road to the north of Edmond, Sunday night.

The single-vehicle crash occurred near E. Simmons Rd. and S. Midwest Blvd. just after 8:30 p.m.

According to police, the truck was trying to make a turn when its load became unhitched and rolled. The tanker was hauling about 8,400 gallons of crude oil. Luckily, the crash did not cause any of the oil to spill.
