The driver of a semi was not injured after he wrapped his semi around an informational sign structure this morning on I-80/94, just west of the Burns Harbor/Porter exit. Indiana State Police Lowell Post reports the semi, which was loaded with 25-thousand pounds of food headed to Meijer's, was heading west in the center lane when the driver could not slow down due to a crash that had just occurred and lost control. As a result the semi jack-knifed to the left and struck the concrete barrier wall, causing the tractor to jump over the barrier wall with part of the trailer on top of the barrier wall wrapping around an informational sign structure. After hitting the sign structure, the hood of the tractor flew off into the eastbound lanes and hit the vehicle of a 23 year old Wisconsin woman who was in the right lane. State Police say the woman was not injured and no semi load was lost. Both east and westbound lanes were closed for a time for the removal of the semi and cleanup of diesel fuel that was lost due to the crash.
