Morning truck crash, fire blocks Ohio interstate

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a truck crash and subsequent fire blocked part of a major highway in northwest Ohio for the morning commute.

Police in Toledo tell WTOL-TV (http://bit.ly/11uVF5l ) the crash happened Wednesday after midnight on Interstate 75 when one tractor-trailer slowed to avoid a deer and was rear-ended by another tractor-trailer. The second vehicle caught fire.

Officials say no one was seriously hurt, but the blaze and diesel fuel damaged the road and blocked a section of northbound I-75 for hours. One lane was reopened to morning traffic as crews worked to fix the road.
