FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Traffic was down to one lane for several hours on I-469 northbound near exit 17, near Minnich Road in southeast Fort Wayne.

According to officials on the scene, the accident happened just before 6 a.m. on Tuesday when the semi driver reached down for something, left the roadway and was unable to recover.
