TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Emergency crews were on the scene of an oil spill in north Toledo Friday morning.

The spill happened at Galena and North Summit around 11 a.m.

Fire crews say a truck was turning onto North Summit and had a leak, leaving a trail of machine or transmission oil in the road.

Crews say the oil is not a hazardous chemical to the public, but it could have caused a vehicle to slide and crash if left unattended.

Crews from the Division of Streets, Bridges and Harbor blocked off one lane of the road and cleaned the area with sand.

Crews say the spill should be cleared by noon.
