MANSFIELD, Ohio -- Interstate 71 is back open in both directions after hazmat crews responded to a bus leaking fluid near U.S. Route 30 Wednesday night.

A bus driver pulled over to check on a suspected leak along I-71 Wednesday night.

A hazmat team responded to the scene shortly thereafter, highway patrol said.

The material, which officials did not immediately identify, is not considered to be dangerous, highway patrol said.

The road closure was originally described as a crash by ODOT, but highway patrol says that a crash never occured.

State troopers are expected to release more information Thursday morning.
