Indianapolis - An accident involving a trucker and a trooper shut down I-70 eastbound near the airport Tuesday night.

It happened in front of the FedEx facility, near High School Road. Witnesses say the state trooper's cruiser collided with an eastbound semi when the trooper tried to make a turn to respond to a SWAT team call-out.

No one was injured in the crash. The trooper was taken to Methodist Hospital as a precaution.

At 11 p.m., crews were still working to reopen the eastbound lanes.
