Fuel spill from rig closes I-280 North

A tractor-trailer crash last night on northbound I-280 near Starr Avenue caused no injuries, but a diesel fuel spill from the rig blocked the freeway for nearly two hours.

Toledo police said no other vehicles were involved in the accident about 6:55 p.m., but vehicles blocked by the wreckage had to be turned around and directed off the freeway, using the Starr Avenue entrance ramp. Other traffic was forced off at Navarre Avenue until the clean-up's completion about 9 p.m.

Police could provide no further details about the crash's cause or any action taken against the driver.
