West Ind. 2 was closed for a few hours Tuesday morning, Sept. 25, 2018, after a semi trailer tipped and dumped its load of scrap metal at the curve in front of Mayflower Motel.

The semi driver reportedly sustained minor injuries in the 7 a.m. accident. No other vehicles were involved. The morning rain, as well as perhaps the semi traveling too fast, were believed to be contributing factors, according to the LaPorte County Sheriff’s Office.
