SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - The Whitney Fire Department announced that Interstate 85 is back open after crews responded to a crash in Spartanburg on Wednesday evening.

The Whitney Fire Department said a construction truck with a crane was traveling along I-85 when its tire popped, causing it to crash into another vehicle before going off the right side of the road. Officials confirmed that no injuries were reported following the crash, but Spartanburg County Emergency Management said a hazmat team responded for spilled hydraulic fluid.

At least two lanes of I-85 northbound were shut down at one point. However, officials stated that traffic is moving again.

Earlier this week a fire involving a tractor-trailer caused a backup for hours on I-85 in Spartanburg County.
