Police say just after 4:30 a.m. this morning, a tractor trailer was pulling a trailer and a semi trailer when it ran off the road and into a median.

The driver then tried to get himself back on the interstate. That's when police say the trailer on the end overturned.

The truck was carrying ink, which spilled along side the interstate, and it was the clean up that caused the delayed back up. It's unclear why the driver ran off the road. Luckily, there were no injuries to anyone.

No charges have been filed against the driver.
