This story has been updated.

Lanes on a stretch of I-95 have reopened after being closed most of Saturday morning, June 18 following a tractor-trailer crash.

The crash happened southbound between exits 14 and 13 at 5 a.m. 

A tractor-trailer truck in the breakdown lane was waiting to have a tire repaired when another tractor-trailer struck it, Norwalk Fire Department Deputy Chief Edward Prescott said. 

The crash ruptured the diesel saddle tank of the disabled truck and spilled the vegetable contents of the other truck across the highway, Prescott said.

The two drivers were uninjured in the crash. 

DEEP was called for the fuel spill, that was contained by firefighters and DOT crews were organizing the cleanup operation. 

The high speed lane remained the only lane passable lane until the cleanup was complete later in the morning.
