Topeka, Kan. (WIBW) - Crews were left to cleanup a mess after a semi carrying hams tipped over on a Topeka highway Wednesday afternoon.

The truck was on the southbound 75 exit to eastbound I-70 when it tipped on its side. The top of the trailer hit the concrete side of the ramp, splitting it open.

Contents of the trailer, including hams, spilled onto the roadway and grassy area underneath the exit ramp bridge.

Southbound 75 to eastbound I-70 was closed for clean-up until just before 6 p.m. Wednesday.

The driver of the semi reportedly suffered minor injuries.
