OVERLAND, MO (KTVI)-An overturned tractor-trailer made a traffic a bit of a hassle Sunday morning at Page and I-170 in Overland.  Around 2:45am, the semi was trying to turn onto the ramp on to northbound I-170 from westbound Page when the load inside the trailer shifted, causing the semi to topple and block the ramp to northbound I-170.

Crews worked all morning to remove the cargo of lawn care products from the overturned semi and place them in another truck.  Then the task began to  upright the semi and clear the road. The northbound I-170 ramp was expected to reopen around 1:00pm.

The driver of the truck was taken to a nearby hospital, but his injuries were minor.
