Chesterton firefighters responded to the rollover of a steel hauler early this morning on an I-94 off-ramp.

Deputy Fire Chief Nate Williams told the Chesterton Tribune today that the rollover occurred around 2:26 a.m. as the semi was exiting eastbound I-94 for southbound Ind. 49. The rig appears to have rolled all the way over, coming to rest upright, but in the process dumped its two coils.

The driver sustained minor injuries and was transported to hospital, Williams said, but no one else was hurt in the crash.

Besides losing its coils, the semi also sprang a diesel leak, prompting the CFD to notify the Porter County Environmental Departmentís on-call hazmat team, Williams said.

The CFD cleared the scene at 4:15 a.m.
