Crash, fuel spill close Leestown Road

Lexington Police spent much of Friday morning cleaning up a crash on Leestown Road.

It was closed in both directions near Yarnallton Pike after an accident involving a tractor trailer around 5:30 a.m. Friday.

Police say the truck was heading down Leestown Road, and collided with a car that was backing out of a driveway.

The impact of the crash caused the tractor trailer's gas line to rupture, spilling diesel fuel onto the road.

Once the spill was cleaned up, the road opened back temporarily, until two more drivers got stuck in the mud, forcing police to shut it down again for a few more hours.
