A truck hauling liquid fertilizer went off the road near West Yellowstone on Thursday afternoon, triggering cleanup efforts in the area.
The truck was pulling two tankers full of liquid fertilizer.
Heavy snow was falling at the time of the incident, and the driver was heading south on Highway 191 when he lost control on the slippery roads.
The rear tanker broke away from the truck, spilling its contents near the road.
No contamination has occurred in any of the surrounding rivers or creeks and most of the cleanup is already complete.
The southbound lane was closed on Thursday night.
Park rangers, Hebgen Basin fire and ambulance crews, as well as Big Sky fire crews, Gallatin County Sheriff's deputies and the West Yellowstone Police Department responded to the rollover.
The driver of the truck was not injured.
