STEUBEN COUNTY, Ind. (WPTA21) - A semi driver hauling spaghetti sauce wasn't injured after his rig crashed on US 20 Thursday evening.

Just after 7:30 p.m., Steuben County Sheriff's deputies responded to a semi crash on US 20 near West Otter Lake Lane 101 in rural Jackson Township.

Officers learned that 25-year-old Oleksandr Burdeinyi of Illinois was headed west on US 20 when police said he was going too fast on a curve.

Police believe he over-corrected and the semi overturned along the curve.

Burdeinyi wasn't hurt, but US 20 had to be shut down for about 2 hours while first responders cleaned up the crash scene.
