  A speeding tanker truck hauling 8,600 gallons of gasoline hit an embankment and exploded into flames at 3:42 a.m.
 Intense heat from the fire caused the upper deck of the ramp to collapse onto the lower deck. A section of the maze has folded in on itself. I-80 westbound to I-880 southbound and I-80 eastbound to I-580 eastbound interchanges closed. Gov. Schwarzenegger issued an emergency declaration to rebuild a major portion of freeway interchange
