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.
