HOUSTON – Crews spent nearly five hours Wednesday cleaning up a fuel spill from an 18-wheeler accident on the East Freeway exit ramp to the southbound Eastex Freeway.
According to police, two 18-wheelers collided on the ramp at around 10 p.m., causing one of them to crash through a guardrail.
The fuel tanks ruptured, spilling diesel fuel across the road. Firefighters extinguished a small fire at the scene.
The exit ramp reopened at 3:05 a.m. Thursday.
The drivers were not hurt.
