Fuel spill temporarily closes Dan Ryan

At 3:13 a.m., a semi carrying a food shipment crashed into a concrete barrior on I-94 northbound at 87th Street, causing the fuel tank to rupture, according to an Illinois State Police master sergeant.

The semi was the only vehicle involved in the crash and the driver suffered minor injuries, the sergeant said.

Traffic was diverted off the Dan Ryan at 87th Street and immediately allowed back on, but the spill was cleaned up within an hour and a half and the Dan Ryan completely reopened.
At least it didn't affect the morning commute from what I can tell.
