I-4 crash causes fluid spill in Volusia County


VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. - I-4 appears to be moving smoothly Wednesday afternoon after crashes caused delays.

One involving nearly half a dozen cars temporarily shut down both the east and westbound lanes.

Traffic had been backed up since 9 a.m. due to two other crashes. The area is a construction zone.

Two crashes on I-4 eastbound caused heavy delays in Volusia County Wednesday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. However, by Wednesday afternoon, the roadways started to clear.

The first crash happened on I-4 eastbound at mile marker 124 in DeLand. One lane was open on I-4 east and westbound, but other lanes later opened up as well.

The crash involved a vehicle that struck a concrete barrier and had knocked concrete into the eastbound lanes.

Minor injuries were reported.

In another incident, there was a 40-gallon hydraulic fluid spill in the area of mile marker 118 eastbound on I-4 near Lake Helen. The spill caused heavy delays on the roadway, but the delays have since cleared.
