Crews are called out to a semi accident in Warrick County.

It happened around 4:00 Thursday morning at S. R. 61 and Turpin Hill Road. The scene is about halfway between Boonville and Lynnville.

Erin Meyer says traffic is still moving and the semi is overturned off the side of the road.

Authorities tell us some of the semi's tires got stuck in the soft shoulder of the road causing the trailer to tip over.

The semi was carrying a load of eggs from Ohio to Prime Foods in Boonville.

The rig was also leaking fuel so the fire department was called to plug it and a HazMat team was called in to clean up.

There are no injuries.

Use caution if you're heading that way for your Thursday morning commute or avoid the area all together.
