GIBSON CO., IN (WFIE) -

 

The northbound lanes of Interstate 69 at Interstate 64 open back up to traffic more than four hours after a semi overturned.

The semi was towed away but it wasn't the only thing that had to be cleaned up.

The truck was hauling 24 large pieces of metal that all had to be cleared from the scene. Each piece weighs about 1,700  pounds.

We're told the driver of the semi was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

State Police say he was going too fast, when that heavy load shifted, and caused the truck to overturn.
