At about 11:30 a.m. Monday a semi tractor-trailer hauling an oversize load of pre-fabricated steel walls overturned at the north junction of State Road 2 and U.S. 421. The driver of the vehicle, who was not injured, reported to police that as he was making a turn east onto State Road 2 from U.S. 421, the load shifted, causing the vehicle to roll onto its right side.

The crash, which is being investigated by the Westville Police Department, caused the eastbound lane of State Road 2 to be closed as the load was off-lifted onto another truck. Due to the size and weight of the load, a cranes was being used. Indiana Department of Transportation was also on the scene assisting with traffic control.

As of 3 p.m. State Road 2 remained closed.
