LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WGGB) — A tractor-trailer accident snarled traffic near the Longmeadow curve.

State Police spokesperson David Procopio says that just after 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, a tractor-trailer collided with a Nissan Altima sedan on the southbound side of Interstate 91, near the curve.

The crash caused the truck to leak fuel onto the roadway and Procopio adds that crews have been called in to clean up the spill.

The right lane was closed for a time, but all lanes have reopened.

The driver of the car, a 37-year-old man from Chicopee, suffered non-life threatening injuries in the crash, and was taken to a nearby hospital.

The crash remains under investigation.
