— A gasoline tanker accident tied up traffic for several hours in western Wake County Thursday afternoon.

Police say a van traveling in the wrong direction on northbound US-1/64 in Cary slammed into a gasoline tanker just past Walnut Street.

Clean-up crews had to completely shut down the highway; traffic was rerouted onto Walnut Street.

Every road leading out of the Crossroads area was backed up for several hours during lunch.
