Interstate 64 Re-opened After Semi Rollover Dumps Fertilizer on Highway

A semi tanker truck hauling agricultural fertilizer rolled over early this morning along Interstate 64 in southern Dubois County spilling some of its load and causing a shutdown of the roadway.

The Indiana State Police at the Jasper Post say the accident took place between 7:30 and 8 o’clock this morning along the eastbound lanes of I-64 at the 66 mile marker just east of the Ferdinand exit.

Details as to what caused the accident have not been released but the rig was said to have been carrying Agricultural Fertilizer that was spilled along the roadway.

Crews with the Ferdinand Volunteer Fire Department were called to the scene to wash down the roadway.

Memorial Hospital EMS was also called in although the driver, who was able to remove himself from the truck was not injured.

As a result of the crash and subsequent clean up, the eastbound lane of I-64 were shut down for about two hours backing up traffic for more than 3 miles. The highway was reopened by 10:30 this morning.
