LaPORTE COUNTY, Ind. — Westbound lanes of I-94 in LaPorte County were shut down for a couple of hours Monday night due to a “sugary” semi crash.

Indiana State Police say around 9:30 p.m., a semi carrying 44,000 pounds of Nutella rolled over, blocking the interstate. The driver, who was not injured, said a car in front of him “slammed on his brakes” which caused him to brake hard, and lose control of the semi.

Not only was Nutella spilled over the interstate, but police say 150 gallons of diesel leaked on to the road as well.
