FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A semi overturned at the I-69 northbound and I-469 eastbound interchange, at exit 315.
The ramp from northbound I-69 to eastbound eastbound I-469 E was immediately closed to traffic. It was back open by 4 p.m.
Traffic on I-69 was not impacted.
Officers at the scene indicated the driver of the semi was driving onto exit 315 when he overturned due to the weight of the vehicle.
The truck was carrying several steel coils which fell off the trailer and scattered across the road. Police told NewsChannel 15 the coils may have actually shifted causing the truck to overturn.
It’s unclear if the driver was perhaps taking the ramp too fast.
The driver did not suffer any serious injuries.
