CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A semi truck accident in Cedar Rapids is slowing traffic in the I-380/Hwy. 30 area in Cedar Rapids.

Greg Buelow, Public Information Officer for the Cedar Rapids Fire Department, says a semi truck carrying 45,000 pounds of Bud Light overturned on the ramp from I-380 north to Highway 30 west.

Buelow says the ramp is expected to be closed until about 11:30 a.m. as they upright the semi and clean-up the accident.

The driver, Travis Dicks, 36, was not injured, but about five gallons of diesel fuel spilled from the truck's fuel tank.  Firefighters were able to seal a two-inch crack in that tank.

Buelow says the truck is owned by Dick's Transport in Colfax, Wisconsin.
