NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Interstate 95 northbound in New Haven has reopened after a tractor-trailer crashed and spilled more than 100 gallons of diesel fuel.

State police say the truck smashed into a barrier at the off-ramp for exit 50 at about 5 a.m. Monday and only the left lane is open. The accident also caused rubber-necking traffic on the southbound side of the highway.

A spokesman for the state Department of Transportation says traffic resumed normally by 10 a.m.

The name and condition of the driver haven’t been released.

Crews with the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection were called in to clean up the fuel spill.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
