There are no injuries reported, according to the spokesman.

FDNY officials on the scene could be seen putting down sand to absorb spilled gasoline.

The truck is on its side, blocking the shoulder and the right lane. Traffic is being funneled in one lane around the emergency response.

The crash is causing extensive delays on the expressway heading to New Jersey and on access roads leading to the highway.

There are also delays on the Brooklyn-bound side of the highway near the crash, presumably due to rubbernecking.

Motorists should consider alternate routes and allow for additional travel time, a Notify NYC alert advises.
