Emergency crews worked for three hours to clean up a diesel spill caused when a semi failed to negotiate an "S" curve on State Route 511 North, at the intersection of Ashland County Road 500 at approximately 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. Leaking diesel fuel from the punctured tank on the semi covered the entire roadway until work crews were able to clean up the area. Ashland County Sheriff's Deputy Randy Wood says the tractor-trailer rig was northbound and didn't have any trailer brakes when he tried to negotiate the curve. The driver of the semi was not injured in the accident, which remains under investigation. The roadway was reopened at 1:35 p.m. Wednesday.
