NORTH TOLEDO -- After a semi-truck accident closed a section of I-75 North for most of the afternoon, it reopened about 5:30 p.m. on Friday.

The truck hit a retaining wall on I-75 northbound on the stretch of highway north of Alexis Rd. The entrance to I-75 North at Suder Ave. in north Toledo was also affected by the closing.

Crews spent the afternoon cleaning up 500 gallons of diesel spilled on the road. An environmental crew was on scene.
