WB I-275 reopens at Madison Pike after fuel spill

FORT WRIGHT, KY (FOX19) -

Westbound Interstate 275 is back open at Madison Pike after a fuel spill completely shut the westbound side of the highway down for more than four hours early Thursday.

Sometime overnight, a vehicle took out a light pole at the entrance ramp to Kentucky 17, Fort Wright police said.

About 2:30 a.m., three vehicles - including a semi tractor-trailer - struck the pole.

The diesel fuel tank on the semi ruptured, and fuel leaked onto the highway.

One lane opened by 7:10 a.m. The highway fully reopened by 8:10 a.m.
