Both directions of Kennedy Boulevard in Tampa have reopened this morning, about three hours after a crash involving a semi-tractor trailer and a police vehicle caused a fuel spill and closed a portion of the road.

The crash forced the closure of the road between Dale Mabry Highway and Hale Avenue.

Tampa police say the driver of the semi attempted a wide U-turn and struck the police vehicle before 5 a.m., causing the semiís tank to rupture and spilling diesel fuel onto the roadway.

Hazmat crews were on the scene, and no injuries were reported.
