HOUSTON — All northbound lanes of I-45 North were shut down at Rankin Road, in the Greenspoint area, for hours after a major crash and fuel spill.
The three-vehicle crash was reported at about 9:20 a.m. Tuesday, according to Houston TranStar. As of 1 p.m. all but two lanes of traffic were blocked. The HOV lane was also closed.
Views from TranStar show a big rig was involved in the incident.
Hazmat crews were also on the scene due to the fuel spill.
Drivers were advised to use the Hardy Toll Road or Eastex Freeway instead.
Earlier, the backup was even worse due to a second crash reported near W. Mt Houston Road. That crash has since cleared.
