(UPI) Indiana State Police said traffic on a highway near the Illinois border was congested when a semi hauling 41,000 pounds of honey overturned.
Investigators said the semi's front axle broke about 6 a.m. Wednesday and the driver lost control of the vehicle, which overturned in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 80/94 at Calumet Avenue.
Police said the truck was leaking honey and diesel fuel.
A trooper told WGN-TV the clean-up operation was being slowed "because of gawkers."
The driver was not injured.Copyright 2019 by United Press International
