RICHLAND COUNTY, Ohio — The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating an accident that caused major travel delays on Sunday.

According to a release from the highway patrol, a semi-truck was traveling northbound on I-71 in Washington Township, just outside Mansfield, when the driver went off the right side of the road, over-corrected and overturned, blocking the center and right lanes of I-71.  It happened at just after 4 p.m.

The driver was transporting a load of spinach which spilled out out across the interstate.

The highway patrol said the crash caused a traffic backup that extended about 10 miles south of crash.

The 50-year-old driver of the semi, who was from Erie, PA, was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
