This is an updated version of a story posted earlier Wednesday morning.
KINGSTON ROAD - An oil spill closed the north-bound Interstate 15 for much of the day and into the night on Wednesday.

The California Highway Patrol and Caltrans closed the north-bound lanes about 15 miles south of the California-Nevada border after a truck carrying containers of motor oil overturned at around 7 a.m. and spilled 1,500 to 2,000 gallons of oil. By 2:15 p.m. on Wednesday, CHP officers at the scene reported that the closure would last a minimum of eight more hours.

A hazardous material crew is on scene to clean-up the spill. CHP Officer Matt Sais said the oil ran into the center divider and does not expect it to containment the water supply. The divider only fills up with water when it rains, Sais said.

The driver of the rig sustained minor injuries, Sais said, and was transported the University Medical Center in Las Vegas.

Motorists traveling north can use the following detour:
o Exit the I-15 at Cima Road
o Go east on Morning Star Mine Road to Ivanpah
o Go north on Ivanpah to Nipton Road, then west on Nipton Road back onto the I-15.
