By Tyson Fisher, Land Line staff writer | 8/1/2014

Road conditions on I-465 in Indianapolis got a little slippery after a semi overturned, resulting in butter and whipped cream spilling onto the highway.

Indiana State Police Cpl. Duane Randall told Land Line that the exact cause of the crash was not listed on the report, but that the trucker, driving a tractor registered under Stoops NationaLease, had struck a highway barrier on the right shoulder. The crash caused the truck to overturn, spilling the cargo of butter and whipped cream across the interstate.

The crash occurred at approximately 3:30 a.m. Friday morning at the 0.8 mile-marker on eastbound I-465 in Indianapolis, Ind. When speaking with Land Line at approximately 11:30 a.m. EDT, Cpl. Randall noted that two of three lanes were opened as crews were still in the process of cleaning up the scene. Traffic was backed up during the morning rush hour. Construction has been ongoing near that stretch of highway, according to Indiana State Police.

There were no reports of injuries. No other vehicles were involved in the crash. All lanes were expected to reopen by early afternoon.
