MOUNT HOPE - Route 19 South was closed Tuesday morning for an hour and a half after a truck ran out of gas and rolled backwards into a ditch. 

Fayette County Sheriff's Deputies said that the tractor trailer ran out of diesel as it was headed up a hill in Mount Hope when it started heading back down the incline and off the road.  No injuries were reported, but the Mount Hope Fire Department blocked the Southbound lanes from 3:08 a.m. to 4:33 a.m. when crews removed the truck from the ditch.
