KNOXVILLE (WATE) - One person was sent to the hospital after a multi-vehicle accident on Interstate 75 Friday afternoon.

Police say the crash happened around 4:30 p.m. on I-75 North at the Emory Road exit. One semi truck and trailer, two large utility trucks, and three passenger vehicles were involved in the crash.

One person was taken to UT Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.

The Knoxville Fire Department's Hazmat team responded due to diesel fuel leaking from a ruptured fuel tank.

Two lanes of I-75 were closed for several hours during the investigation and cleanup.
