According to the Warrick County Sheriff’s Office, the driver of the semi spilled his coffee, lost control of the semi and tipped it over. We are told the driver is fine.

Deputies say traffic is limited to the left-hand lane for now.

Deputies told 14 News they had to shut down the eastbound lane at the I-64 and I-69 interchange to clear all traffic so they could lift the semi back up on its wheels. They say the eastbound lane of the interchange was shut down for about an hour or two.
