Three tractor-trailers were involved in a pileup that temporarily closed northbound Route 17 in Ho-Ho-Kus Friday morning.

Traffic was backed up to Paramus after the crash near Hollywood Avenue just before 10:30 a.m.

One rig jackknifed across the center and right lanes, and a significant amount of diesel fuel spilled onto the roadway when a saddle tank on one of the other tractors ruptured.

Ho-Ho-Kus police and firefighters responded along with an emergency response crew from the NJ Department of Transportation.

The highway was cleared and reopened after nearly half an hour.
