A minor tractor-trailer accident caused some major traffic alerts along the Vine Street and Schuylkill expressways.

It happened around 4:30 Saturday morning.

Police say the saddle tank of the tractor was punctured, causing diesel fuel to spill on the roadway.

A sand struck and a big rig tow truck were both called in to clear the scene and remove the vehicle.

There were several delays in the area for hours but all lanes have since reopened.
