A driver was hospitalized Tuesday night after a multi-vehicle crash on the Bishop Ford, causing a fuel spill that forced the temporary closure of all outbound lanes.
The crash happened just before 9 p.m. on the Bishop Ford Freeway (I-94) near 130th Street.
Two semi trucks and a car crashed on the outbound lanes blocking all outgoing traffic. The driver of one of the vehicles was taken to St. Margaret Hospital in Hammond, Ind., while other people involved refused medical treatment, Fire Media Affairs said.
The driver's condition was not immediately disclosed, but State Police said no one suffered any life-threatening injuries.
The wreck caused about 200 gallons of fuel to spill on to the roadway, prompting a Level I Hazardous Materials response, officials said.
The freeway was opened again at about 11 p.m. Tuesday night.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
