IN:Semi carrying gun powder overturns on I-65 near Lafayette

Gunpowder is a propellant, not an explosive. It is safer to handle than gasoline.

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A semi truck carrying 80 pounds of gun powder overturned Thursday morning closing one lane of Interstate 65 near Lafayette.

It happened around 3:30 a.m. in the northbound lanes of I-65 near mile 171 (between the Ind. 38 and Ind. 26 exits).

Investigators says the driver swerved to avoid a deer, then overcorrected in the interstate median and finally ended up in a ditch.
