I-75 reopened after chemical spill

Part of Interstate-75 was closed for more than 12 hours today following a chemical spill.

The accident happened around 3a.m., just south of the Kentucky border in Jellico, Tennessee.

A Knoxville television station reports a tractor trailer crashed and spilled the chemical all over the road. We're told traffic backup from the crash extended into Kentucky.

All lanes are back open tonight.
