MILILANI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Several northbound lanes of the H2 Freeway were closed for about an hour, as crews cleaned up an oil spill.

The spill was reported just before 1 p.m. Wednesday near the Mililani Mauka off ramp, forcing the closure of the two middle lanes.

As road crews cleaned up the mess, drivers reported a major gridlock in the area.

The spill was the result of an earlier accident that did not result in serious injuries.
