10 miles of eastbound Indiana Toll Road closed for hours

BRISTOL, Ind. (AP): The eastbound traffic on the Indiana Toll Road is being rerouted after a semitrailer carrying 23,000 pounds of paint flipped and spilled part of its load in north central Indiana.

Sgt. Trent Smith of the Indiana State Police posted on Twitter that the eastbound lanes between mile markers 92 and 101 were expected to remain closed until 5 p.m. EDT Wednesday. He says westbound traffic isn’t affected.

Police say the truck left the roadway and flipped when the driver attempted to steer back into his lane. Police say about 300 feet of the road is covered with paint.

The crash occurred 20 miles east of South Bend.

The privately operated Toll Road carries traffic on Interstates 80 and 90 between Illinois and Indiana.
