KEYSTONE HEIGHTS, Fla. — **As of 11:46 a.m., the Florida Highway Patrol says road closures are expected to last an additional eight hours.
A crash with injuries closed State Road 21 in Keystone Heights Tuesday morning as Clay County Fire Rescue worked to clear the scene where a fuel tanker overturned and began leaking fuel.
Florida Highway Patrol said on Twitter the crash involved three vehicles including a fuel taker carrying around 7,300 gallons of gasoline. State Road 21 was closed in both directions, with detours in place.
