STANTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police say two people were hurt and an unknown amount of racing fuel was leaked when four vehicles crashed on Interstate 95 in Stanton.

It happened shortly after 8 a.m. Wednesday north of the Churchman’s Road off-ramp. Troopers say a Ford Transit driven by 24-year-old Gerald Nichols of Wilmington hit the side of a minivan driven by 51-year-old Shawn Johns of Wilmington.

Police say the minivan hit the fuel valves of a tractor and tank trailer and an SUV. The tanker truck leaked an unknown amount of racing fuel and traveled about ¼ mile before stopping on the shoulder.

Nichols and Johns were taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries that do not appear to be life-threatening. Troopers cited Nicholas for making an unsafe lane change.
