RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Traffic was backed up for miles on I-440 after a truck crashed into a median around noon on Thursday, spilling fuel on the highway, according to Raleigh police.

Fortunately, police said the evening commute will be back to normal as crews finished the clean-up efforts at approximately 2:45 p.m.

Raleigh fire officials told CBS 17 that approximately 50 gallons of fuel leaked from a box truck and covered all three lanes.

The westbound lanes of I-440 at Wade Ave., as a result of the leak, were shut down to drivers which made the Glenwood Road exit the detour for about three hours.

While traffic was diverted, a sand truck was brought in to help get the fuel cleaned up and to get traffic moving as soon as possible.
