A Wednesday morning tractor-trailer crash on southbound Interstate 95 near Exit 169 in Springfield snarled traffic for hours.

The wreck happened at 5:23 a.m. and left the truck leaking fuel. State police had all lanes closed southbound at one point, but as of 9 a.m., only the right lane remained blocked for clean up.

Traffic backed up for more than 17 miles, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.
