OAKWOOD VILLAGE (WOIO) – A nasty wreck on Interstate 271 northbound is finally cleaned up but it took more than half the day to re-open all the lanes.
The crash happened around noon Monday at the Alexander road over-pass.
The highway was shut down in both directions for several hours.
By 9 p.m. the mess had been cleaned up and all lanes were back open.
Police say a tanker truck and an engine truck collided, causing a major fuel spill.
Other vehicles then slid on the fuel, creating several other accidents.
No major injuries were reported.
