HUBBARD TWP., Ohio (WKBN) – A commercial truck driver was charged after a crash which caused a diesel fuel leak in Hubbard Township.
The leak prompted police to close State Route 62 near Interstate 80 just before 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. The intersection has since reopened.
Two semi trucks were involved in the crash Wednesday morning on I-80 and Route 62.
According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, one truck turned left in front of another on Route 62. That driver, identified as Lilian Doronceanu, was charged with failure to yield.
HAZMAT was called to the scene to clean up the approximately 15 gallons of diesel fuel that spilled.
Highway Patrol said it took about three hours to soak up the fuel with sand, then the intersection had to be closed to clean up the sand.
