A semi accident on the west side of Indianapolis is causing major traffic delays.

It happened around 7:00 am along northbound I-465 near the I-74/Crawfordsville Road interchange.

The truck driver was getting on the ramp from I-74 to northbound I-465 when the 44,000-lb. load of lead bars in his trailer shifted because it was improperly secured.

The semi flipped onto its side as the driver entered I-465 from the ramp, slightly injuring the driver. His wife and two dogs were not injured.

Indiana State Police expect traffic to be affected in the area until noon.

Traffic was slowly squeezing through the left hand emergency lane, but there is still a huge back-up that is stretching back to Rockville Road.
