EVANSVILLE, In (WEHT) – Grain was scattered all over the road on Interstate 69 just outside of Evansville.
This was due to an accident involving a grain truck, causing traffic to be backed up and down to one lane.
Investigators with the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office arrived on the scene at 9:15 a.m. and determined the grain truck was going 45 MPH in a 70 MPH zone.
They also said the driver of a 2022 Jeep Wrangler tried to pass the truck but misjudged the distance and hit the back of the truck, spilling the grain.
No injuries were reported, but Vanderburgh County Deputy Weiss commented the Jeep appeared to be a loss. Weiss also said the debris would be cleared by noon.
