ST. BERNARD, OH (FOX19) -

UPDATE: Both directions of Interstate-75 reopened around 1:30 pm. Friday afternoon.

Below is the original story.

Motorists should expect significant delays on the morning commute. To detour around the area, drivers can take eastbound I-275 to southbound I-71 or the Norwood Lateral east to southbound I-71. 

Both sides of the highway shut down shortly after 9:30 p.m. Thursday when semi driver lost control of for some reason and crashed in the northbound lanes between Mitchell Avenue and the Norwood Lateral.

Responding crews found the semi on its side with the cab fully engulfed in flames. 

The driver was able to escape with minor injuries and was taken to a hospital, Breitfelder said. 

His name, age and the company he was driving for were not released.

About 150 gallons of diesel fuel spilled onto the road and was either burned or washed away by fire hoses dousing the inferno, Breitfelder said.

The vehicle also was hauling 5,000 gallons of a marine pollutant, but that did not leak.

The Cincinnati Fire Department's environmental crimes unit, St. Bernard Fire Department, Ohio Department of Transportation, Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and Clean Harbors all responded to the scene.
