Semi crash coats highway in butter

INDIANAPOLIS – A semi overturned on an Indianapolis interstate early today, spilling what police said are 45,000 pounds of butter and other dairy products.

The crash happened about 3:30 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 465, just west of its interchange with Interstate 65 on the city’s south side.

The crash left butter tubs strewn on the highway, many broken open and coating the road.

Police said the truck driver apparently fell asleep and hit a highway barrier. No injuries were reported.

Some lanes of the highway are expected to be closed for hours for cleanup work, with crews using a small front-end loader to scoop the butter tubs and whipped cream containers into large trash bins.
