At approximately 5 a.m., a fuel truck collided with another vehicle. The crash ruptured the tanks on the fuel truck, spilling fuel across all lanes and blocking traffic at Highway 427.
Traffic was diverted onto Eglinton Avenue when all eastbound express lanes were blocked.
The Ontario Provincial Police advised motorists to take alternative travel routs.
No injuries were reported.
As of 8:15 a.m. the OPP said that the two right lanes were open, but the left remained closed. By 10:15 a.m. all lanes had reopened.
