Two trucks collided on I-81 early Thursday morning, causing a headache for morning travelers.

Traffic was still crawling late morning on I-81 just north of the Verona exit. According to State Police, earlier, a tractor-trailer slammed into the back of another truck, hauling lumber.

Diesel fuel spilled onto the highway. The right lane was closed all morning long, causing long delays.

State Police expected the road to be reopened by Thursday afternoon.
