    A jackknifed tractor-trailer and subsequent fuel spill caused traffic troubles in the Lehigh Valley for hours Tuesday morning.

    The wreck left eastbound U.S. Route 22 closed between 15th Street and Route 145 in Whitehall Township.

    The wreck around 4 a.m. caused fuel to spill onto the roadway.

    The roadway remained closed for nearly four hours as cars were forced to exit the highway. Tilghman Street or Interstate 78 could be used as alternate routes, said NBC10 First Alert Traffic reporter Jillian Mele.

    No word of major injuries.
