Posted: Updated:

The Interstate 24 East ramp to Interstate 40 East was shutdown for several hours Thursday following a collision involving a motor home and tractor trailer.

The wreck was reported around 11 a.m.

Officials closed the ramp because fuel spilled onto the roadway.

Eastbound traffic was affected with the on-ramp blocked and traffic was being diverted to alternate routes.

The scene was cleared and the ramp reopened by 1:45 p.m.

No injuries were reported.
