A wreck involving a tractor-trailer and fuel spill has been cleaned up from the northbound lanes of I-75 near Exit 390.

Traffic is moving again but reportedly still very heavy. The on-ramps at Exit 390 are still closed. Additional wrecks have also been causing problems on the highway.

The latest wreck was reported around 2:30 p.m. in the northbound lanes near mile marker 382. That wreck reportedly involves multiple injuries.

The tractor-trailer wreck happened around 12:15 p.m. The Florida Highway Patrol says the wreck started when a Chevy Camaro lost control while trying to merge onto the highway. A report says the Camaro collided with the Fed-Ex tractor trailer, causing the truck to hit the center guardrail and a Mazda. No one was seriously hurt in the crash.

Gainesville Fire Rescue initially reported one hundred gallons of fuel leaking from the truck, but as of 2 p.m. the department tweeted the spill was contained.

Authorities allowed some drivers to turn around and drive the other way on the interstate.

A second wreck with injuries was reported in the southbound lanes near mile marker 403.
