Waterloo Rd. in Akron remains closed after semi accident

AKRON, OH (WOIO) - Waterloo Rd. in Akron has been closed for several hours -- in both directions at  77 southbound -- due to an overturned semi.

Akron police say a semi truck carrying shrink wrap, came off 77 southbound offramp, lost control, and crashed at a nearby gas station on Waterloo Rd.

The male driver and a female passenger were able to crawl out of the cab and was not injured. The truck also hit a light pole in the fall. There are no issues with the tanks at the gas station but the truck itself is leaking a little diesel fuel from the tank.
