Mishawaka Road finally reopens after semi overturns in Elkhart

Posted:

A truck rollover accident on IN-19 and Mishawaka Road in Elkhart injured a driver and tied up traffic Tuesday afternoon and evening.  The semi was turning on to Mishawaka, heading east, when his rescuers believe the truck hit the curb and rolled rolled onto its side.

The driver was taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.  Crews did have to cut open the top of the truck to get him out.

The tanker contained powdered plastic that emergency responders say is not hazardous.

Part of Mishawaka Road was closed just east of Indiana 19 for much of the afternoon and evening as crews removed the plastic from the truck, then turned it upright so it could be towed away. It is now open.
