HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — An accident Wednesday morning closed some lanes on Interstate 91 Southbound in Hartford, at Exits 26 and 28.

On Wednesday, April 26, a tractor trailer was traveling southbound on I-91 when it lost a tire, and punctured a fuel tank on another truck, causing it to spill fuel on the highway, closing the right and center lanes, that have now re-opened.

According to authorities, the scene was considered safe.

DEEP (Department of Energy & Environmental Protection) was called to the scene, as fuel was reportedly leaking into storm drains, and CDOT (Connecticut Department of Transportation) was called for sand trucks.
