DUPO, Illinois (KMOV) –  Route 3 near I-55 in Dupo, Ill. has reopened after a tractor trailer that was transporting 9,000 containers of rubbing alcohol overturned.

According to authorities, the driver of a tractor trailer flipped over late Tuesday while trying to turn from I-255 onto Route 3.

Police say none of the rubbing alcohol was actually spilled during the incident, but because the chemical is highly flammable, crews treated the accident with precaution.
