TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. - Interstate traffic was affected Friday morning after a driver fell asleep at the wheel and his truck, carrying a load of pineapples, left the roadway and overturned.
Indiana State Police (ISP) said just after 3 a.m., a semi tractor-trailer was headed north on I-65 near the State Road 25 exit near Lafayette/Delphi when the driver fell asleep. The semi drifted off to the right side of the interstate and overturned.
Officials said a co-driver was asleep in the sleeper cabin of the semi at the time of the crash. He was treated for injuries and released at the scene, ISP said. The driver was uninjured.
The semi was coming from Pennsylvania to Morris, Ill., when it crashed.
ISP said the truck needs to be unloaded of pineapples before it can be turned right-side-up.
