Overturned truck spills white ink on SW Ohio road

Published:

VANDALIA (AP) -- Workers have been cleaning up white ink that spilled onto a highway when a tractor-trailer overturned, interrupting road traffic for hours near the Dayton International Airport.

The Dayton Daily News reports the 28-year-old driver exited the cab unhurt after the crash Monday on Interstate 70.

The Environmental Protection Agency has been cleaning the affected part of the roadway and remained on scene throughout this morning.

The local fire department says the ink is used for printing and isn't hazardous.

The State Highway Patrol says the weight of the ink shifted during travel, and the driver was cited for having an unsecured load.
