Delaware state police say a driver involved in an accident that shut down an I-95 feeder ramp for hours has been cited for careless driving. State police say 51-year-old John Krug of Deptford, N.J., was hauling diesel fuel when his tractor trailer sideswiped a state transportation department truck that was stopped on the shoulder of a ramp leading from northbound Route 1 onto I-95 southbound.

The tractor-trailer's tank was punctured by the crash and spilled about a quarter of the 1,750 gallons of diesel fuel it was carrying. The crash and cleanup closed the ramp for about seven hours Friday.
