HAYWARD -- All lanes of southbound Interstate 880 have reopened after a jack-knifed tractor-trailer spilled diesel fuel across the roadway Monday afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol.
CHP crews responded to the crash near the A Street onramp at 2:07 p.m. and found the tractor-trailer facing the wrong direction and leaking diesel fuel across three lanes and into shrubbery on the shoulder, Officer Peter Van Eckhardt said.
According to Eckhardt, officials shut down the three right lanes of the roadway after finding that 40 to 50 gallons of fuel had spilled, presenting a fire hazard to oncoming motorists.
The big rig, which was pulling two empty dirt haulers, was not carrying fuel for distribution, and was spilling from its personal reserve.
No other vehicles were involved in the crash, and no injuries have been reported, Eckhardt said.
The center lane reopened about 2:45 p.m., though the right two lanes were closed until about 5 p.m. while crews cleaned up the fuel.
