A medical truck loaded with tanks full of liquid oxygen crashed into a car in Central El Paso, firefighters said.

The accident happened around 3:00 p.m. at the intersection of Yandell and Gateway North.

Investigators said the truck collided with a compact Honda, then flipped over.

Both drivers were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

It took emergency crews over 3 hours to clear the accident because some of the oxygen tanks were leaking.

Nearby homes were not evacuated.
