Overturned Tanker Truck Shuts Down Jasper Road

A semi-tanker truck ends up in a water-filled ditch, shutting down a road in Dubois County.
A semi-tanker truck ends up in a water-filled ditch, shutting down a road in Dubois County. It happened along 400 West on Jasper's far west side this afternoon.

We're told the driver was attempting to back up onto Skyview Dr., but his left rear wheels slid off the side of the pavement. This caused the trailer and cab to overturn. The tanker was hauling lime.

Crews at the scene stopped the small fuel leak and had to remove the lime from the tanker since it would be too heavy for a tow truck.
