Northbound Interstate 75 at Schaefer Highway in Detroit has reopened after an early Wednesday morning crash, officials said.

The crash happened at about 4:45 a.m., they said. No injuries were reported.

Michigan Department of Transportation officials said at about 7 a.m. all of the northbound lanes of the freeway reopened. 

Michigan State Police said troopers were called to the area earlier for a report of a jackknifed tractor trailer.

They arrived and found the tractor was leaking fuel, which prompted them to close the freeway's northbound lanes.

Officials said a hazmat team was brought in to clean up the fuel.
