MIRAMAR, Fla. - A stretch of University Drive was shut down in both directions Friday morning because of a crash.

Miramar police the northbound and southbound lanes of University Drive were closed from Miramar Parkway to the Miami-Dade County line because of a diesel fuel leak caused by the crash.

The crash involved a CSX Transportation tractor-trailer.

Local 10 News traffic reporter Jenise Fernandez said drivers should take Douglas Road or Red Road as an alternate route.
