NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Traffic is snarled on Interstate 95 northbound in New Haven after a tractor-trailer crashed and spilled more than 100 gallons of diesel fuel.

State police say the truck smashed into a barrier at the off-ramp for exit 50 at about 5 a.m. Monday and only the left lane is open. The accident is also causing rubber-necking traffic on the southbound side of the highway.

The name and condition of the driver haven’t been released.
