HAMMOND, Ind. (ADAMS) – A rollover crash in the eastbound lanes of I-80/94 at Calumet Avenue closed the roadway for hours Wednesday morning. A semi hauling containers of “Amber Honey” lost control and rolled over. The semi was hauling 41,000 pounds of the honey. Five of these containers came out of the box trailer and there are still eight inside, at least four of the containers leaked. It appeared the semi was coming onto eastbound I-80/94 from Calumet Avenue when his front axle broke which caused the driver to lose control and roll over.
The driver also stated he had just fueled up and the semi was not only leaking the honey – but diesel fuel. The semi driver was not injured.
Traffic was impacted in both directions.
