DEKALB COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) The southbound lanes of I-69 at mile marker 328 in DeKalb County were closed for several hours Thursday following a semi crash.

According to the DeKalb County Police Department, at approximately 1:41 p.m. deputies responded to a semi crash.  When they arrived they found the semi blocking both lanes of traffic.  The driver was not hurt, but the rig was leaking oil and fuel.

It was determined the right side tires of the semi dropped off the side of the road and the rig hit the west side guardrail. The driver then lost control and the rig traveled about 200 feet before coming to a stop.

Indiana State Police cited the driver for improper lane movement.

The cab was a total loss and INDOT will have to replace 200 feet of guardrail.
