The Bourne Bridge and Bourne Rotary have reopened to traffic.

Massachusetts State Police say the Bourne Bridge was partially reopened at 9:14 a.m. Wednesday.

The right travel lane going onto Cape Cod and both lanes off Cape have reopened.

The outer lane of the Bourne Rotary has also reopened but the inner lane of the rotary remains closed for cleanup.

Both the bridge and rotary were closed after a gasoline tanker crashed and spilled about 5,000 gallons of fuel.

State police say a preliminary investigation has revealed that the tanker, which was carrying roughly 11,500 gallons of gasoline, had crossed the Bourne Bridge around 11:00 p.m.

It is believed that when the truck then reached the rotary it continued straight instead of turning, jumped the curb, struck the embankment.

The truck's driver, identified as 47-year-old Thomas B. Medeiros of Westport, was removed from the crash and taken to Tobey Hospital with minor injuries.

State Police say the truck is owned by TBM Trucking of Westport and the trailer (tank) was owned by DJ Cronin Inc. of Seekonk.

An environmental cleanup remains underway.

The incident remains under investigation by Troop D of the Massachusetts State Police with assistance from the State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Section.
