Tanker crash in NE Ohio leaks fuel into stream

RAVENNA, Ohio (AP) — A tanker truck carrying 7,800 gallons of diesel fuel overturned on a northeast Ohio highway, leaking fuel into a nearby stream.

The State Highway Patrol in Portage County east of Akron says there was no evacuation and the driver suffered only minor injuries in the crash near Ravenna early Sunday.

The patrol says firefighters contained the leaking fuel.

Two highways were closed during the cleanup and re-opened by mid-afternoon.
