Overturned semi, small spill blocks I-70 East near North Split

INDIANAPOLIS - Traffic backed up after a semi overturned on Interstate 70 just past the North Split Tuesday morning.

Officials said just after 8 a.m., a semi crashed and overturned, blocking several lanes of I-70 East, just past the North Split, at mile marker 83.

There was a small spill in the crash.

Indiana State Police (ISP) said it would take two hours to clean up the wreckage, but all but one lane was open by noon.

No injuries have been reported, but officials said crews had to get the spill cleaned up before traffic could proceed through the area.

Drivers were advised to find an alternate route or avoid I-70 altogether.
