OAKWOOD VILLAGE (WOIO) – A nasty wreck on Interstate 271 northbound is tying up traffic in that area.

It happened around noon at the Alexander road over-pass. The highway was shut down in both directions.

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.

I-271 northbound and southbound at Alexander road are closed until the road can be cleaned up.

It’s unclear how it will take before the mess is cleaned up.
