The westbound lanes of I-76 near State Route 43 in Portage County were closed as a precaution so that the hazardous liquid -- diisobutylene -- could safely be transferred.
The container needed for the transfer arrived from Columbus before 8 a.m., allowing the process to begin. In the meantime, crews worked to open one lane.
According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the tanker went off the side of the road and into a ditch in Brimfield Township at approximately 11:30 p.m. Monday. Sgt. William Bancroft tells Fox 8 News that a small amount of the liquid spilled.
Bancroft says he does not believe that there were any injuries. The driver of the semitrailer was awake and talking to authorities at the scene. The truck had been uprighted by early Tuesday morning.
Before the one lane reopened, traffic was being rerouted by the Ohio Department of Transportation. There were no substantial backups during the Tuesday morning commute.
