SEATTLE -- A rolled over tanker carrying diesel fuel continues to block traffic on East Marginal Way South and Highway 99 in Seattle.

The tanker truck hit a power pole and rolled over, shutting down traffic for several blocks. The Seattle Department of Transportation estimates the road will re-open by 3:00 p.m.

Firefighters are trying to safely clear out the tanker. Seattle Police Department spokesman Mark Jamieson said there were no injuries and there doesn't appear to be any leakage from the tanker.

Some power lines were downed as a result of the crash, but Seattle City Light reported no resulting outages.
