Officials blaming a fuel spill for the delays along I-75 North this morning.

A TDOT salt truck was involved in an accident on I-75 just north of East Raccoon Valley Road. It happened early this morning around 3:30, well before the snow and ice moved in.

Multiple vehicles were involved including the salt truck and a tractor trailer. Officials say about 100 gallons of diesel fuel was spilled. It took hazmat crews until about 9:00 o’clock to clear the scene.

Officials say the salt truck driver was taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
