Law enforcement agencies in Wood County have been busy since late morning handling vehicular accidents.
No serious injuries have been reported.
U.S. 6 west of Bowling Green was reopened about 3:25 after being closed about two hours.
The Route 6 problem began when a semi rig struck a guardrail and punched a hole in a fuel tank, spilling diesel fuel on the roadway. The fuel made the road even slicker and caused other vehicles to slide off the roadway. The accident was just west of the Wood County Landfill.
The road was closed while the truck was removed and the roadway treated.
Bowling Green and Weston firefighters were sent to the area to check vehicles.
A minor two-vehicle accident in the 200 block of South Main Street in Bowling Green sent one vehicle into a one-way street sign and two large sidewalk flowerpots. No injuries were reported.
Just before 3:30 p.m. Rossford sent emergency crews to Deimling and Crossroads. Intitial reports indicated the crash was not serious.
About 3:15 p.m. Sandusky county officials asked Lake Township for an EMS crew to help with a multiple-vehicle accident on the Ohio Turnpike in that county.
Bowling Green declared a snow emergency just before 1 p.m. and Wood County was placed under a Level One snow emergency at 2:40 p.m.
