State Road 63 open after semi accident Monday morning


VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – A semi rolled over in northern Vigo County early Monday morning.

It happened at around 4:15 a.m. at State Road 63 and Bolton Road.

Minor injuries were reported but Vigo County dispatch tells us the truck was hauling 40,000 pounds of Wendy’s food.

An officer on scene told our photojournalist the semi driver may have fallen asleep.

State Road 63 southbound was closed between Sanford and Bolton Road for several hours.

Traffic was being re-routed to U.S. 150. Officials later reported a two-vehicle accident on the detour caused additional traffic issues Monday morning.

Indiana State Police reported the accident happened at the intersection of U.S. 150 and Sandford Road. The Trooper told our crew at the scene that a vehicle on Sandford Road turned onto U.S. 150 and failed to yield oncoming traffic.
