QUEENSGATE, OH (FOX19) -

A flipped semi truck shut down a Queensgate ramp on Monday morning.

The ramp from 6th Street to U.S. 50 East was closed while crews cleaned up a diesel fuel spill.

The accident happened around 11:30 a.m. 

A responding tow truck was called to lift the semi-truck from its side. In the process, the tow truck also flipped, according to a witness on scene.

The scene was eventually cleared following the assistance of a third tow truck.

No one was hurt.
