One of Downtown Lincoln’s busiest streets is back open after a large diesel spill following a crash late Wednesday night. It all happened just before 10 p.m. at 9th & O Streets. Battalion Chief Mark Majors with Lincoln Fire & Rescue tells 10/11 NOW crews were called out to the scene after a minor crash between a pickup and a semi. Chief Majors says the pickup struck a full diesel fuel tank on the semi. He says that resulted in 40-50 gallons of fuel to spill all over the intersection. LFR was on scene for nearly two-hours to clean up the mess, leading to the complete closure of O Street between 9th & 10th. The intersection of 9th & O was also closed for a time, with traffic being diverted away from the intersection.
