HOUSTON, TX — A collision involving two heavy trucks Thursday resulted in a hazmat spill on the East Loop Freeway near Houston’s Clinton Park Tri-Community, reports ABC13 Houston.

The accident happened on the northbound lanes (IH-610 East Loop) at Clinton Drive. It was first reported by ABC13 at 10:41 p.m.

It was unclear what led up to the wreck, but the Texas Department of Transportation said crews were working to clear diesel fuel that had spilled on the roadway.

All main northbound lanes were shut down for multiple hours during the response, creating a miles-long traffic backup as drivers were forced to pass through the shoulder.

As of this writing, authorities have not shared details on the condition of the parties involved.
