ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) - A traffic nightmare was bottling up traffic on metro Orlando's busiest highway.

A semi-truck slid off an embankment on Interstate 4 north of Orlando Tuesday afternoon, backing up traffic in both directions for miles.

Hazmat crews were at the scene of the crash cleaning up spilled diesel fuel.
